Expectations

 

I’ve always had expectations

from the first time we met

realised our dreams

forged in conflict

on life’s anvil



the world keeps spinning

even when you let go

although my head is spinning

as it all slows down

the forge cools



my dreams keep recurring

I don’t want to wake up

to the possibility

of diminished expectations

and forgotten memories

…….


but still I linger

for the dreams to become

real expectations
