I’ll Wait

I’ll wait~

I gave for years~

I put down ~

To continuously lift myself up~

Inside I frowned.

I’ll wait~

I raised the little ones with tears~

I built you up~

I earned my keep~

I ran the household~

Inward I was known to weep.

I’ll wait~

I played fare~

I asked with courage~

No one could tell~

My deep despair.

I’ll wait~

I learned as the time appeared~

To be patient~

While others leered.

I’ll wait~

Yet it was too late~

You scoundrel to be feared~

I played chess~

Used the best logic~

I could not catch~

A pleasant breath~

I lost what I had to invest.

I’ll wait~

I un-confrontational gave~

For right reasons. ~

You were selfish~

Did mean things~

With no just cause~

No matter~

I still survive the stings!

I’ll wait~

I sacrificed for children~

And pets~

I went without~

Lived with illness~


No one would hear~

No one would listen.

I’ll wait~

You lied and deceived~

I went about~

To only give when I couldn’t~

A burden to others~

You made me hurt, oppressed~

You rogue~

You louse!

I’ll wait~

You plotted and schemed~

I allowed you to alienate me~

My precious gems lost temporarily~

And how you wounded not just I~

But also a child of Thee.

I’ll wait~

While you dole out pittance to them~

I pay for your ruthlessness~

Your ignorant stubbornness~

You’ll be sorry in the future~

You will know punishment~

Your salvation will be cut~

Slowly sutured!

I’ll wait~

To the bitter end~

Than I might come back on you~

Or leave to judgment~

From the Lord~

I take no pleasure~

Or solace~

On what He will~

To you afford.

I’ll wait.
