she waited



she waited faithfully
for the blue eyed boy
whose eyes locked with hers
when he was ten
she only weeks old


two whole years
faithful
slept in his empty bed
while he worked
played
prayed


sister attempted to fill the gap
it still gapped
she wasn't enough
so kitty waited...
ever watching
listening for his voice


finally
he returned
now twenty-one
once again eyes locked
blue on blue
she remembered
slept on his pillow
breathing him in



but, she wasn't enough
not like the old days
when love songs
STYX and Journey
reminded him of her



he had to move on
hazel eyes
laughing, holding
he was leaving
and
she knew it


so she moved on
different blue eyes
who faithfully respond
feed
stroke
tease


but sometimes he returns
home
she hears his voice
she comes running
wanting to play
grabbing his hands


ever faithful
never to forget
or give up loving
her blue eyed boy
