waiting, watching

waiting, watching, counting the hours
submitting to time – that mightiest of powers
which can bring around change and alter your mind
or proceed on its own and leave you behind

waiting, watching, looking above
to the aircraft soaring as if like a dove
hoping there’ll be no further delay
that I don’t have to linger around all day

waiting, watching, saying a prayer
that one of these moments you will be there
an angel in the sky, ready to land
giving the greatest of treasures: your hand
