Waiting (2)
Ashley Burdett

Hands folded,
Head dipped forward,
Lips silently moving
In a makeshift prayer,
I sit waiting and awaiting,
News.
Some news.
Any news of you.

My heart races away
With the strength
Of a thousand sprinters
Hoping to reach the end
Of a formidable challenge.

Moisture drains away
From my lips
As they continue to move
On in their vigil.
They grow dry,
Barren.

My back strains to hold my weight
And as I move
It creaks and cracks
Under all of the time
Iíve spent
Nestled before my Savior.

Why is it that
I still cling to hope?
Why is it that
My head still
Dips in prayer
The way it did
Starting so many years ago?

For in all my waiting
I have heard nothing.
