Waiting Here For You

Life has passed by in a blur

Like a comic book the days flick past

They merge into a single motion; the colours intermingling

The brilliant oranges, the fiery reds

The murky browns and the shadowy blacks

All splattered on the pages, telling my story

Reminding me of the intricate fabric that makes up my life

There have been good times and there have been bad times

But at all times I wait for You

 

Life has so many phases

It’s like changing trains

The hustle and bustle and the flustered face as you try to find your seat

The cold, unfamiliar eyes that stare back at you

Life refuses to stay constant

Like a restless child, it can’t stay still for a second

It shakes the foundations underneath your feet

And all that you were used to falls away

But at all times I wait for You

 

And yet life can feel so static

Like you stuck in a frozen frame

Like the track is stuck on repeat

Monotony has stripped everything down to grey

Like damp paint peeling from the walls

Everywhere you look you see mirrors,

The same, pale reflection of life in every one

You search for meaning behind what you do

And the answer disappoints

What happened to the adventures of life?

The wild explorations and the sudden surprises

It can be so easy to become discontent

But at all times I wait for You

 

Dark days

They punctuate life at various intervals

Like daggers piercing the skyline; they take up the view

The sun dims and the clouds seem darker and thicker than before

The way you look at life changes

You realise that pain could be around every corner

Life doesn’t seem as stable

It is easy to let the dark, whispering mists occlude your view

To let them blind you from the truth

But at all times I wait for You

 

I don’t know what is on the next page of life

I don’t know how it will all unfold

But I know that You do

And I know that You will lead me

That is why I wait

Though the colours are still mixed

The bright amongst dark

I know that at the end You will wipe every tear

And only the good will remain
