I’ll Wait (poem)

I’ll wait beside this soft streetlight of hope

Which through the darkness promises a way

A small reminder of another day

This limit to the vastness heart must cope


I’ll wait the mornings through the sun and rain

And through temptations happening along

Which try my resolution with their song

A wonder beyond reason to explain


I know I am a victim of mere chance

But life has found a toy to play its game

I wonder does another feel the same

When something more was spoken in a glance


I’ll wait through all her horrors yelling grim

Until my loved one finally leaves him

Ah, the perpetual triangle of love - very well done and I love the ending.

This poem encompasses so many different levels of the human spirit.

There is hope for a future and remembrance of a day in the past.

There are patience and temptations and intentions.

There is doubt and even suspicion.

But, I hear resolve and determination.

Beautiful read, Martin.

Waiting can be so hard, sometimes. We are not patient beings. Lovely poem.

As they say patience in virtue.
