wait …

Wait for life
Wait for love
Wait for that miracle cure

all the while we are missing
the precious moment of NOW
life and love drift by

we miss that vivid blue sky
the strident cry of a magpie
still waiting we heave a sigh

living each moment
we capture the gift
of a life well lived

share a smile
for it’s worthwhile
free flowing healthier style

that cure may never come
but don’t succumb
to gloom or doom

each hurdle is a lesson
no use second guessing
life is here and now

… why wait!

dVerse, waiting, Sarah


  1. You are so so SO right! 🙂 No reason to wait! We must live each moment, celebrating today, be in now, and act on what we can do today to change the world for the better, for the future! 🙂
    Wonderful poem, Kate! One of your bestest! 🙂
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

  2. I love this one
    Every moment is so filled with awesomeness that we miss preparing for the next moment of awesomeness that we don’t enjoy if we aren’t there.

  3. Agreed, Kate. Many authors pen these hesitations, be they lassitude, misplaced idealism, shyness, etc. Only later do we appreciate what slipped through our fingers.

    As many have observed through the millennia, looking back, we regret omissions (what we didn’t do), not commissions.

    Platitudes notwithstanding, we all miss opportunities, Poems like yours are valuable, as they inspire us to be quicker the next time in seizing Chance. Thank you.

  4. Well put, Kate! We all tend to “wait” to enjoy things when everything is just right…but that never happens! We need to enjoy what and who we have, right now, with all of the imperfections. That’s just life!

  5. I think we often spend so much time waiting that we do forget to think outside the box.
    I think that is one of the reasons I enjoy blogging – and seeing different places, people and views.
    We don’t have to agree on everything.

    There are good healers around, some are doctors some are just those who love us.
    While we wait for that appointment for that second view, we can still move forward with all the hope we can muster. Positive energy is always better than the alternative.

  6. This reminds me of a refreshing conversation I had with a cancer patient who said to me “I am happy to live and I live even in the dying, if it comes it comes, right now I am here.” Yes, live in the now. What else can you really do?!
