marking time

standing underneath the wind chimes
I contemplate about the future
I get over my grey thoughts
as the rain no longer sounds like dirge

I think of you, feel a spark of joy
the sun sees my spilling happiness
and dispels the cold
the birdbaths sway as I find my way to you

no jaded feeling can slash me now 
your mere presence is enough
I have waited a lifetime
I can wait a few more hours

a mirage, a reality-
doesn't matter--
if one wishes for togetherness till eternity

Hope and belief in what would make you content in life is well portrayed in this poem. All things are possible if you have faith and determination.

How lovely! For a minute--for a line or two--I thought the narrator would falter due to temporary conditions. Whew!

So lovely, especially, having waited a lifetime, being able to wait a bit longer.
