Waiting

We are always waiting.

Waiting for the train,

Waiting for our Birthdays,

Waiting for him to call,

Waiting for her to call,

Waiting for lunch,

Waiting for dinner,

Waiting to curl up in bed,

Waiting for tomorrow,

Waiting for love,

Waiting to get home.

Waiting for winter,

Waiting for nine p.m.,

Waiting for the kids to move out,

Waiting for the kids to visit,

Waiting for a diagnosis,

Waiting to say goodbye,

Waiting to the pain to end,

Waiting to fall asleep.
