The wait, a journey we all must take,

A test of patience, for our hearts to make.

It can feel like forever, or just a short while,

But in the midst of it all, we can still find a smile.

We wait for love, for hope, for a sign,

We wait for answers, for our purpose to align.

We wait for dreams to come true, for life to unfold,

We wait for healing, for the pain to be controlled.

The wait can be a time of uncertainty and doubt,

A time when we wonder, what life is all about.

We question our purpose, our direction, our goal,

And we wonder if waiting, will ever make us whole.

But the wait can also be a time of growth and change,

A time to heal, to transform, to rearrange.

We can learn to be patient, to trust in the wait,

And to let go of the fear, the worry, and the hate.

For in the wait, we can find beauty and grace,

We can find hope, in the darkest of the place.

We can learn to be still, to listen to our heart,

And to embrace the journey, from the very start.

The wait can be a time of connection and love,

A time to reach out, to connect with those above.

We can find strength in community, in those who understand,

And we can hold each other, as we navigate the land.

So embrace the wait, with an open heart and mind,

For in the wait, we can find the strength to unwind.

We can learn to trust, to have faith in the unknown,

And we can find the courage, to make the journey our own.

The wait may be long, but it will come to an end,

And we will emerge, stronger than we were back then.

For the wait is a journey, a test of our will,

And we will come out victorious, with a spirit to fulfill.

Waiting is a journey we all must take,

A test of patience, for our hearts to make.

It can feel like forever, or just a short while,

But in the midst of it all, we can still find a smile.

The wait can be a time of uncertainty and doubt,

A time when we wonder, what life is all about.

We question our purpose, our direction, our goal,

And we wonder if waiting, will ever make us whole.

But in the wait, we can find beauty and grace,

We can find hope, in the darkest of the place.

We can learn to be still, to listen to our heart,

And to embrace the journey, from the very start.

For in the wait, we can find the strength to unwind,

We can learn to trust, to have faith in the unknown,

And we can find the courage, to make the journey our own.

So embrace the wait, with an open heart and mind,

For in the wait, we can find the strength to unwind.

We can learn to trust, to have faith in the unknown,

And we can find the courage, to make the journey our own.

The wait may be long, but it will come to an end,

And we will emerge, stronger than we were back then.

For the wait is a journey, a test of our will,

And we will come out victorious, with a spirit to fulfill.

The wait is a journey, both long and slow,

A path we must take, wherever we go.

It can feel like forever, an endless stretch of time,

But in the midst of it all, there's a reason to shine.

The wait can be daunting, uncertain, and gray,

It can feel like we're stuck, with no hope or way.

But in the wait, there's a strength we can find,

A hope that will carry us, and ease our mind.

For in the wait, we learn to be still,

To listen to our hearts, and follow our will.

We discover the beauty, in moments of peace,

And learn to let go, of the things that won't cease.

The wait can be trying, it can feel like a test,

But it's a journey we must take, and face with our best.

We find strength in our struggles, and hope in our dreams,

As we wait for the future, and all that it means.

So let's embrace the wait, and make it our own,

With courage and faith, and a spirit that's grown.

For the wait is a journey, both long and slow,

But it leads us to greatness, and a life that will glow.

As we journey through the wait, we'll find ourselves anew,

With a strength that will guide us, in all that we do.

We'll face our fears head-on, and learn to let go,

Of the things that don't serve us, and leave room to grow.

So don't be afraid of the wait, or the time it may take,

For in the midst of it all, there's a life to make.

A life full of beauty, of hope, and of grace,

As we journey through the wait, and embrace the space.

For the wait is a journey, both long and slow,

But it's the path that will lead us, where we need to go.

So let's walk with courage, and a heart full of love,

As we journey through the wait, and find our way above.
