"Worth Waiting Forever For"
From grassy slopes she stood facing the turbulent sea,
Searching for her childhood dreams of a handsome prince,
To come sailing along and capturing her hearts desire.
Waves crashing into barrier reefs of jagged rocks she watched,
As ship after ship passed by beyond the rocky cliffs,
Hair blowing in the misty salty breeze she stood dreaming.
Sails flapping in the breeze as red sunlight bounced from fluffy clouds,
Wishful look in her stare as the evening's dusk slowly falls,
A sigh escaping into the winds hollow breath of misty salty air.
Standing on green grassy slopes lost in make believe,
Waiting for a handsome prince to come sailing along,
As waves washed across barrier reefs of jagged rocks.
Brown eyes reflecting the fading sunlight's last gleam,
Smile tugging at the corners of her lips she stood proud,
Because in her mind true love was worth waiting forever for.
