When Can I see You Again?
When can I see you again? I love you very much!
When can I see you again? I yearn for your touch.
When can I see you again? My heart does truly ache.
When can I see you again? My love you cannot take.
Why did I cry when you left me?
Why did you leave at all?
Was there something wrong with me?
Or did you not care at all?
I wrote you several letters.
I wrote each day and night.
My heart was palpitating.
When you were never in my sight.
“I love you! I love you!” I said each time.
Why did you not respond?
Was it only in my imagination?
Or did you not love me at all.
Thanks Elizabeth!! 🙂
“When can I see you again?” my little brother, Johnny, inquired as he tugged on my hand.
“I don’t know yet,” I replied.
“Will you ever come back? Oh, Talia! Promise me you won’t be gone forever!”
I chuckled for a moment. “Johnny, I’m just going to college. I’ll probably be back in a year. Now promise me you’ll be good for Mommy and Daddy.”
Johnny crossed his arms and turned his back to me. “You never promised that you wouldn’t be gone forever, so I won’t promise that I’ll be good.”
I kneeled down to Johnny’s level and turned him to face me again. “Johnny, I promise that I won’t be gone forever.”
“Okay, I promise to be good,” he said.
Johnny gave me a long hug. Then, I put my luggage in the trunk of my car. I hopped in the driver’s seat and started to drive off. Suddenly, I saw Johnny running behind me in my rear view mirror. I stopped the car and ran out.
“Talia!” Johnny yelled. “I wanted to hug you one last time before you’re gone and I wanted to ask you if you’ll call me every night and-”
“Johnny, of course I’ll call you.”
Later that night, I was in my dorm room. I was all alone. I picked up my cell phone and called Johnny.
“Hello?” said the familiar voice.
“Hey Johnny! It’s Talia!” I said.
“Talia! Hi! So I had a question.”
“When can I see you again?” he asked.
