I Will Wait For You!

“I will wait for you!”

Those were the sweetest words I had heard in my life. It sounded better than my favorite song. Immediately, I started smiling. He just knew how to make me smile. He knew the right words that keep me going.

Oh, Tim! How sweet art thou? I remember how every morning he would send me a text with very fresh words. He was consistent, unchanging; and although he sent me a text every day, he never repeated lines. I wonder how he did that. I just wonder.

Those days, I would wait for his heart warming texts. For fear I would disrespect God by reading his texts before my Bible, I always read a portion of the scripture, try to meditate on a verse before heading off to read the text. 9:30 was the time I had my first class and at exactly 9:10, the text would come in. which is exactly when I get set to leave my room. His duty was to make sure I started my day with a smile – and he always lived up to it.

Now he had graduated. He is leaving to the real world; to start a life for himself and create a future for the both of us – I believe.

I expected something different at the airport. Some good bye kisses at least. We had never kissed before all through the two years I have been dating him. When the urge was there, he would hug me so tight and give me a fore-head kiss, or kiss my hair after telling me how nice my hair smelt today. Oh how gently he would stroke my hair. I always wanted to be in his arms. They were the safest place for my troubled spirit. When I am in his arms, I am content, I am at peace. I am assured of tomorrow.

Oh Tim!

The last call for his flight came and even though I expected a kiss, he gave me something to hold on to – He will wait for me.

I looked up at him, smiled and repeated the same words, ‘I too will wait for you.’

He smiled. I didn’t cry. He had told me that I will never be cold when he was around, and truly, his love kept me warm. He always said I will never cry when he was near, and truly his words kept me smiling.

He looked at me and without thinking answered, ‘I Know!’
