Waiting for God at

you’ll love

you’ll lose

and let go

 

then love again

and sometimes even better than before

if along the way you somehow managed to grow

 

but taking into account the odds

you’re bound to lose once more

however, by this time, it shouldn’t be as difficult for you to move on

but if so, then a kind of sorrow soon follows

 

still, as long as man lives, man hopes

and so you’ll go on

waiting for your god to grant the mate your soul longs for

    Wonderfully said, Sir. I’m Kerry, a poet who lives in St. Augustine, Florida, and your words make me think of one of my poems…

    MOURNING DOVE 2005

    Break it to me gently
    Please, emit one moan;
    And let me know, ahead of time
    Before you have to go.
    Echo with your painful song
    Tell me what you feel today
    What has come to interfere
    Why must you go away?
    Where do our lives take us–
    Prepare me for the sorrow.
    Be the one who finds me here…
    The one who comes tomorrow.

    Be the one I care about–
    Don’t leave me here this way.
    Tell me of your quiet thoughts
    And why we cannot play.
    You no longer sing the song
    There’s something you can’t say.
    Be the one who hears me
    Be the love I’ve waited for.
    Mourn for me, my little dove:
    You must not move along.
    Take my sweetest offering
    And open up your wings.
    For no-one here can hear me
    None can sing
    What you can sing.
    Love comes once
    And only once…
    I’ve known you since I was born
    No one here, can sing like you
    And none, like me, can mourn.

  20. The poem seems to cover much more than waiting for a mate of a communion with true love. The question of unanswered prayers(usually they are answered in ways we don’t perceive and better things are granted than which we had hoped for in God’s plan), frustration, worry, and resentment are relevant as well by the poem’s theme.
