Wait

four am just after the full moon turned to wane

somewhere Before the dawn where sleep should be full With dreams awake and travels sweet

Waiting is never fun and when your heart walks outside of you the wait is even longer

sniffs at the door show signs of return  for a dog knows his person and feels them close

I’ve done this before

sat up wondering

praying the door swings open soon

how many times did I wait in his room?

a mother’s lament is never over and the blessings aren’t either

wait with patience and worry won’t darken the path

  1. These lines are beautiful: “…when your heart walks outside of you the wait is even longer/sniffs at the door show signs of return for a dog knows his person and feels them close…” Grief as a waiting that never ends is so achingly perfect.
