To Wait Is A Pleasure - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

To wait for a baby;
To wait for an event;
To wait for a result.
Anything to wait for
With love and hope nourishes.

To wait for surgery;
To wait for a verdict;
To wait for an arrest.
Anything to wait for
With hate and dread worries.

Receive when it comes.
Let it go when it slips.
Don’t wait for a fortune,
Which is a prostitute.
Wait if it gives pleasure.
