Waiting -Promote Yourself


Waiting I am, I have always been,

The question was always for what

A moment, a feeling, opportunity perhaps,

While the answers, I know, I have already got


I waited for change in my life and it came,

Then wished it would go away

Realized this change, I did not want,

Then wished and waited

To have my old way


While waiting for sun in a midday storm,

The beauty of rain was missed

To close the umbrella and dance carefree,

While on my skin, its drops would kiss


I once waited for summer in winter,

That was the year I missed spring

Missed all the flowers with scent of new life,

Missed the birds when to me they did sing


Waiting for morning I missed my dreams,

As I laid awake that night

Daybreak came, the stars had gone,

No fairytale visions from sleep came to sight


When I waited for love and I got it,

Waited so long till it came

 I just couldn’t believe that I had it,

And then waited to be left

All alone once again


To wait on the words I love you

With my ears open, but eyes then shut

I missed all your gestures, clues, the signs,

That showed me you loved me,

And just how much


Sadder than the rain, love, spring and dreams,

Was waiting to grow, with my years hurried through

During that time the most precious was missed

​While ​

I lost sight of the joy of 

​my very own ​
