We wait for what we long for

We long for what we need

Impatience and Anxiety

Give root to errant deed

Which grows to yield but heartache

The fruit that poisons trust

And so to shadow we recede

And hope descends to dust

But somehow from the ashes

The will to try again

Doth mend the heart

And forge the path

In search of that one friend

Who never will betray us

Who ne’re will go astray

But fear still lurks upon the thought

While waiting for that day

We’ll simply stumble once again

For we know not who to trust

Thus thoughts becomes an enemy

But conquer them we must

For surely there is someone

Whether ‘Shining Knight’ or ‘Bride’

Then all shall have been worth it

Our “Last Hope” justified
