    Need help

    I have read the points explaining how we can use the gerund form of the verb. But I can't understand in what way the following gerund has been used. Could you please explain it.

    She stood waiting.

    OR

    He lay thinking.


    Thank you

    It's simply that some verbs are followed by a gerund.
