Tag: waiting



As the last rays of sun
stretch down to touch the earth
and the final leaf falls from the tree
I will still be here, waiting
for you and all that it is worth
Let the darkness come
and smother me with dread
For I will soon know
whether you will finally come
or my fear will tear me to shreds
A lifetime spent in anticipation
of this moment to arrive
When love be requited
and we are together at last
so my heart will revive

Waiting For You

Waiting For You

Where feathers flutter to the earth
and the bamboo reaches the sky
On the morning grass covered in dew
Where the hedgerows are lined
with wild flowers intense with color
That’s where I will wait for you
Where the sun sets on the horizon
and the rain falls into the stream
In the forest where moonlight peeks through
Where the sunlight falls on a grassy meadow
Or glints in-between the trees
That’s where I will wait for you
When the oceans eventually run dry
And the sun falls from the sky
When the mountains crumble from view
When the earth finally comes to an end
And there is nothing left to see
That’s where I will wait for you

Waiting – A Haibun

We all wait for something every day.  Whether it’s the coffee brewing or standing in line at the grocery store.  It’s a way of life, and to me, it is not a big deal, but many can’t abide waiting.

I have plenty of patience and never more so than when I was pregnant.  The wait of nine months was an incredible journey of learning!  Each trimester having its own special identity and feeling. Then at the end is priceless and precious gift!

Lady in Waiting

Dancing on the perimeter of your life
Constantly moving so you would
Not forget I was there
I wait for you to beckon me
Inviting me into your life

You are open and welcoming
But cautious and in control
You do not pursue me
I do not know you yet
You may love another

I will be patient because it feels so good
I’m comfortable in my state of waiting
I believe you will come to me
One day
And so it is in your hands
