Wait awhile


‘All good things come to those who wait’.
That’s how the saying goes,
Patience pays a vital part as
How long the wait no-one knows.
It’s not unusual to stand in line
For a bus, doctor, or food,
Our middle name is ‘Wait’ it seems,
For the appearance of that ‘good’.
Romance and love are another thing
Don’t be too much in a rush,
So often we can simply mistake
The real thing for a ‘crush’.
‘Wait a minute’, or ‘Just a sec’
Are things we are often told,
The time frame is immaterial
Especially when you’re old.
Waiting for them is precious time,
A waste as it’s running out,
But then that is another wait
And what life is all about.
