An elegy for patience

by poetrydiary

We choose between sadnesses,
Sliding softly between the sheets;
Alone again and forever,
With you beside me as always.

I write an elegy for patience.
Yours, and mine. Waiting
For different trains
On the same track, at the same time,
And the same station.
So much in common;
But without hope.
