how long shall I wait,
until the spring?
for the first songbird to sing
or for the last shower to sweeten the air?

how long shall I wait,
until the summer?
for the first campfire to burn
or for the last ember to go out in the morning?

How Long Shall I Wait?
shall I wait through the seasons?
shall I wait forever and a day for you?

how long shall I wait,
until the fall?
for the first green leaf to turn
or for the last colour to blow away in the breeze?

how long shall I wait,
until the winter?
for the first window to frost
or for the last snowbank to melt away in the shade?
