Waiting in June

For a moment now I sit and wait
As drizzle drifts on mild June air.
Machinery rumbles beyond our gate
And those I am meeting are not there.

For a moment now I sit and wait
And wonder what to do.
For I’ve done the tasks I set myself
And am waiting now for you.

For a moment now I sit and wait
And wait for you and them.
I think of the world beyond our gate
And I wonder “if” and “when”.

Their tasks have taken them time they’ll say
Or you met some friends in town.
The ground is green and the sky is grey
And I’m waiting here alone.

But being alone is a lovely place
Where my thoughts are free to fly
To answer the questions, to solve the case,
To discover the “how” and the “why”.

So I sit alone but I do not mope,
For I know you will return,
And in this world there is always hope,
New chapters still to turn.
