Waiting

vimy-beds-cropped

Like a mother waits, for a child, for him, to linger in the door
That is how I wait, that is who I wait for

Like a sister waits, for a younger brother, and the older
That is how I wait, for when they grow no older

Like a father waits, for a daughter to return, and a son
That is how I wait, not for war to be won

Like a brother waits, for ones he loves, out past the line
That is how I wait, until to me your fate does assign

Like a tide, like the darkness, the dawn, the silence
I wait for your stories to end this endless violence

I wait
