Poetry Wednesday - Waiting

Marcus C. Bell 1953-2010   
Waiting

Always waiting for you
Me always early
You always late
Pretending it wasn't so.

So why rush now
To this unspecified destination
Beating me to the finish line
While I wait for you to stop the race.

Waiting again
Will I always
Think of you
As time passes without you.

You will never show up
Never arrive as I always feared
Dreading the call
That never came.

Always said I'd leave
And I did
But never far enough away.
You beat me at last.

Now it is your turn to wait
Hope you are better at it than I
Because I don't plan to rush.

  2. I am so sorry, Jacqui.
    Your poem speaks to us all most poignantly. As Bee said,Hold on..hold on for all of us here who care so much for you.
