The inky blackness fades to pale blue as I wait,
I watch the moon struggle to keep its face visible.
Once I was asked by my true love to wait,
But the one who holds my heart won’t return.
They say that I should just stand and wait,
Even when my future is now my past.
Still, I remember the good times when I did wait,
Those times, when a smile would fill me with hope.
I can no longer stay in this existence and wait,
For my pain is too much for me to bear.
When the sun fully rises, I will no longer wait,
I will leave this mortal life and become no more.
You've read my ghazal,
Now tell me what you think...
