Thursday photo prompt: Watcher #writephoto

Every Thursday at noon GMT, Sue publishes one of her photos as a writing prompt.

‘Twas on a night like this you left.
The mist was falling as you walked away.
I never said what you longed to hear.
Now, I may never be able to tell you
How much I love you.
My world is barren, you left me bereft,
My own doing, and such a high price to pay.
How I wish that I could draw you near,
Tell you lovingly and true,
How deeply I love you.
Each night I watch and pray you’ll come,
Return to me and make me whole.
Into your open arms I’d run,
Forever yours, body and soul.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
