Sinigang Sinigang For The Soul

(Adrianne) What The Stars Knew: I
comment No Comments October 3, 2007 – 8:25 pm

“I’ll call you,”That’s what you said
The Sunday we met,
So I waited and waited and waited.
Still you haven’t called

Whatever it is you’re doing,
Can’t you spare a minute
To give me a ring?

Tonight is Wednesday
And as I sit here anticipating,
Constantly praying
All of a sudden I know.

I can sit here now forever
And snivel altogether
Until the tears run salty on my cheeks
For all of a sudden I know.

I know what the stars have known
All the time.
You’ll never, never call…
