Learning to Wait, My Crimson Friend

We may not speak to each other
Not directly.
It hurts my heart so,
but i can only learn to wait.

Yet with this so-called pain,
passing by moment by moment,
i can't help but notice
your beauty and strength
more and more each day.

i am so privileged
to have been surrounded,
and in some ways still surrounded,
by your presence and companionship,
by your love and compassion,
by your friendship and understanding,
by your trust and strength,
by your selfless dedication,
even by your weaknesses and sadness,
by your anger and indifference,
by your tears and your pain.
