Missing 2

I am building a path.
It leads back to you.
I’m making it from weeks, and days,
and hours, and even minutes,
sometimes – not too often minutes,
I’m glad to say.
I stick the weeks and days together
with promises, and hope, and words.
I water the path with love.
Of course, watering never made
a path grow faster.
But it gives me something to do
with my love.
And the path does grow:
every day, by a day,
every hour, by an hour,
it brings me closer to where you are.
And where you are is where we are,
and there I’ll have something better to do
with my love
than watering these days and weeks and hours.
