While I Waited

While I Waited

That day while I was waiting
For once it wasn’t raining.

So I took that time
To go inside
As I sat under a tree
Ready for whatever that ride
Had in store for me

Within I dove
And there I found
The truth of how
my heart was ground
to resemble powdered glass

I could clearly see
That lovely day
To my vulnerability

It wasn’t simply
Here and now
Your advantage I’d allow

Every day I’d fear
Your absence
And I’d begun to disappear

The sun shone through
As I waited
And it was then
that I drew

My conclusion.
