So I’m waiting for a sunrise,
I’m waiting for another day,
I’m hoping to hear something nice
Tomorrow, if not today….

I can see the stars, I can see them shine
I can see them mock me, I can see their smile,
I can see their lines, a design divine
Even if it took me a while..

And it happens, every night, while I wait,
For the words to come to me; I hope
As I watch the clouds dance with a telescope
For the words that illuminate…..

The hours, they tick, they tock, they fade
And down goes more sand in the hourglass
And I wait in vain, and I wait in vain
Oh ’twere better to watch the growing grass….
