Adrian Wait Poems


Faith is the light of the next step
Illuminating a way ahead,
Without revealing the direction.
Faith will sustain, and comfort

What is this feeling within my heart;
Concealed by daylight hours, in a shroud of taut restraint.
Winter evenings consume, yesterdays pursue me,
Smiling, speaking, acting – I can cope, I can cope….

There’s a new leaf upon the Tree
A thousand, thousand have been before
In the life of this great tree
Yet, the Tree rejoices, and is glad

Son of my mother
time of fear a friend
time of adversity a brother
time of laughter, a comrade


Is it possible?
Can it be done?
To capture Joy
Loves smile begun

Busy crowds, lonely hearts, broken dreams
Shopping for yesterday.
Visiting the shared moments,
In all the familiar places

And the devil took the high ground
And the Angels took the rest
The Angels stood and waited
Whilst the devil did his best


Early words
Made up words
First words
Learning words


There are days of sun
And days of rain
Days of joy
And Days of Pain

For the broken, the disguarded
Somebody's, nobody knows
He wept for the Widow, Orphan
And He wept for the lonely too

They say it was a Hunter’s moon
The night the City died
They say it was a hunter’s moon
The day the people cried

They sort to teach of things I knew
Seeking to re-inform, and make anew
They spoke of cabbages
And of kings

Love is not Blind
Yet some declare it so
Love is not deaf
Though many fail to know

Plough a furrow leave your marks
when bastards scar with their remarks
They use a razer to slash at hope
Build the gallows, provide the rope

There is a distance in her eyes
No bridge could ever span
A distance in her eyes
Between what was and is

Wishes and Dreams
May these be yours
For Our time Together
I Thank You

Whatever the weather
They’ll tether the weather
Whether we like it or not
Spinning tales of global warming

I am Everyman
Part of the main
The human side of God
A gift, unused and denied

Off Camera.

Off Camera
The smile fades

Soft falls the rain
Flowing from mountain
To amplify streams
Events and thoughts

What is life if full of care... and what life isn't?)

The Best Poem Of Adrian Wait


Faith is the light of the next step
Illuminating a way ahead,
Without revealing the direction.
Faith will sustain, and comfort
Through our darkest hours.
Faith upholds the unseen hope,
It is the seasoning that endures,
the pain of life whilst revealing
that misery can be optional.
Faith is a light in the darkness,
Surrounded, yet not consumed.
In the storms of our lives
Faith is the stillness, seated at
The rear of our boat.

Your Winter poem is really 'captured'! I like the ray of hope and optimism in the end. Your poems are very rich.
