Waiting on the other side

You were always waiting

On the other side

As we heaved and trawled

Our mounting burdens

 

Sometimes the darkness

Blindfolded us, losing us!

The noise became too loud

The road much too long

 

Then through the tunnel

Light trickled in

There you were… waiting

On the other side

 

Firmly rooted

Filling the space

With your curved branches

Filtering light, promising shade

 

The waiting must surely be over

On the rebirth of this day

That so many died for

That we might live again!
