Wait (The Affair)

+ enlarge
 

I said I love you


You said I love you too,


But wait …


You said you want me to be your wife;


Be your life …


But wait …


We spoke of a future


So together we could grow old;


You said you wanted me


And wanted to spend your life with me …


At least that’s the story you told.


I exposed you to my kids and did family


Things; shared their birthdays, Christmas


And took family pictures, I did everything for


You as a wife would … only you weren’t mine


To do all these things with, you were obligated to


Someone else, it was never to me … let me go now,


I need to be free.


You know you weren’t with her when you and I met,


We had our life planned out, had our life set.


To be together over a year then she comes back into


The picture, this hurts … and I asked you to go,


To have you back and forth from my bed to hers, you said it isn’t so


You say she is just there since you share a child … that is okay but why


Not a divorce? Why haven’t you filed? You say she doesn’t love you


And you don’t love her, if this is so, why are you still together and I am alone?


Why do you stay there with her and I am in this empty home?


Remember the nights I spent all alone?


Whether it was sitting by the phone or


Glaring out the window, all I did was wait.


Six years is a long time to ask me to wait,


Now you tell me again to be with you,


To be with you and to be a part of your life


I have to continue to wait on the decision


Of your wife.
