thoughts and things

Waiting

Waiting

Tick Tock, Tick, Tock
Counting down
To an invisible clock

Silence, waiting, by myself
No work to do
Think about nothing else

So far to come; not long to go
Head is whirring
Hardest part not to know

Every twinge, every ache
People’s hopes are at stake
The days come and go
“Still no sign?”
I have to say “No”

When the day comes
Will I know how to feel
A new life in my hands
A different kind of real
