TITLE: When Will You Think of Me?

Last night I saw your fitful sleep,
I watched you toss and turn,
I wondered if Id hear your call,
The one for which I yearned.

The sun rose up above the hills,
In all its majesty,
I thought youd see its grandeur,
And turn your eyes to me.

You spent the morning in distress,
I watched you pace the floor,
I was ready to help you fight,
Your battles in this war.

Your children were oblivious,
So innocent and carefree,
I hoped that youd become like them,
And give your trust to me.

That afternoon in the park,
I watched you hang your head,
I listened for your prayer,
But heard worrying instead.

My creation was around you,
Birds, butterflies and bees,
I wanted you to notice them,
And turn your thoughts to me.

Nightfall came, the day was gone,
I watched tears fall from your eyes,
I waited for your summons,
To call me to your side.

Another troubled, sleepless night,
Filled with anguish and misery,
When will you know I love you,
And turn your prayers to me?

This is beautiful. I felt like you've been spying on me. Thank you for the beautiful reminder I'm sure I'm not the only one who needs those words right now!

This was a great reminder not only to me, but I'm sure to many others. And it was beautifully written.
