Time and Again

 

Like a giddy child
I skip
Hurrying along this path

Wait

 

man-2196323_640

I try to get ahead
Ahead of the sorrow
Ahead of the hard times
I long to run to you

couple-1171604_640

But these chains
These chains
Trumped up justice
Back they pull

chains-19176_640

I know the plan
I see through the schemes
Wait
Forever a wait it seems

Try as we may
Time and again
The wait will not be rushed
Longing to rush through
time-2743994_640

The sadness
This fear
Separated by all of those years!
I wait

I don’t like it
It hurts
I wish there were more
More than I could do

girl-2786277_640
But with the deepest sigh
Groans from within
I swallow my fear
I fix my eyes

eye-2274884_640

I take up my sword

and wait

Yes

I wait

I wait

fantasy-3699102_640

I wait

I will continue

to wait for you

Until you’re home again
