Waiting - Poem by naida supnet

Waiting means
more cups of coffee and more late at nights,
counting the stars and savoring the moonlight.

waiting means
marks on the calendar and listening to the clock
letting the time pass counting all the raindrops.

Sometimes it means
every waking hour and smiles in the sunrise
more words of love more poems that surprise

There are times when it means
more tears rolling down though it hurts deep inside
you wear a mask of a clown.

Also it means
long phone calls and letters words of trust and assurance
and love in his songs.

At night you close your eyes
you pat yourself with a sigh another day is done
wait, just wait, you'll get by

Waiting is a feeling
of longing and missing, of sadness and tears,
of crying and hurting.

But waiting is something
I've learned to love because it means loving him
with all I have.

Though waiting is not
waiting without tears
waiting is something I wouldn't miss.

Waiting is loving
loving is waiting
I'll continue to love, and yes, I'll continue to wait.

    Waiting is sometimes so disgusting, yet, with your love you have defined it so beautifully!
    'But waiting is something
    I've learned to love because it means loving him
    with all I have'
    Wonderful! And also,

    'Waiting is loving
    loving is waiting
    I'll continue to love, and yes, I'll continue to wait.'
    Deserves 10/10 simply because of the loving heart the poem exposes.
    May love fill every corner of your home.

    a poem of wisdom, universal write..
    very meaningful...wonderful concept to ponder..
    and sends a kind of touch...like a caress in our hearts.
    Waiting is showing we are drifting to God's master plan
    He will never left things undone
    Waiting is believing that God will take care of the rest
    We'll just have to wait and He will give us the best...
    Thanks for sharing your talent, Naid..you're a versatile poetess....

    Waiting is also learning....empathy and values of life
    Waiting sometimes is the epithet of true love
    Waiting sometimes ends up futile
    Waiting somehow are all people to come and leave this worlds strife

    Your lovely poem does not wast time while waiyting: counting stars and savoring the moonlight/counting all the raindrops/ surfacing words of love and poems / love continuing. I learned from your poem to not waste time between waiting and attaining.
    thanks for sharing
