I anticipated 

Held back and hung fire

Sat tight and waited

I gazed at the starry sky 

The forbidden galaxies

How the stars hold secrets

Marvelled at the chalky moon

And waited

The wanted never seems to happen

I felt the burdens of history topple

How the air was thin and dangerous

I touched the stars in my dreams

I felt the magic exploding

Stayed awake for the entire night

Just to see the wholesome sight

And waited

I love and hate then hesitate

Dream and smile then fall back to sleep

I want to believe the sunshine

So I let the magic happen

Because I waited

Everything beautiful comes after waiting. Even if it's long, it only happens if you wait. Just at the right time, it appears every blue moon. Wait for your next blue moon.

"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne

Okay, your writing is fabulous!
