The Wait…

When you’ve done all you could,

Even when, no one, by your side, stood,

You mustered up courage and hope,

And took upon you beyond what you could cope,

You waited day through night, 

You looked above wrong and right,

Futile your efforts were, you did know,

Yet, your disappointment, you didn’t show,

The wait was perhaps worth it all,

Inspite of the pain, the tears big and small,

Because, the chaos, the pandemonium, it brought and broke,

Actually, strengthened your soul with each stoke!



Like a whiff of perfume,

My soul, I let you consume,

With my every passing moment – I,

To you, myself, willingly tie,

You are my hope, you are my fire,

You are everything I desire,

You are my forever, my happy ending,

So, hurry up, don’t keep me waiting!

P.S. This is my response to daily prompt

I’m waiting…

To be swept by happiness and a new, positive tide,

For beautiful surprises and smiles wide,

For horizons new, and new beginnings,

To ditch all regrets of the past, to a fresh new innings!
