Seems as forever

so many lost in death

me I wait expectant

that soon will be an end.

I wait with tears

that so many fall asleep

victims to the terrible things

that upon this Earth do creep.

It is the time

that I know

forgive me I am human

I cannot see children dying

without seeking explanation.

Waiting at the four corners

for your Son

to sound the charge

when all our expectations

will unfold

before our eyes.

I listen

I hear   

still seems like forever

though it is near,

when

and only then

can we really say

Amen.
