I'm waiting

There was a man I once knew
who I could have loved
and never been untrue
but he was married to another
he felt no love for me... he
simply wanted a lover
church and society has said this is wrong
so I wandered on my way
wishing I could, instead, belong
The sound of his voice haunts me still
longing for his touch
never, this dream again, to fulfill
"I want you" he used to say
and make life stop for hours
in nakedness together we'd lay
The world said it's wrong for us to touch
for me to give in to him
it isn't enough to say I cared that much
Love has to be the answer someday, somewhere
so here I'll wait alone
until he's alone, and I am free to care
