Good things come to those who wait
Or so the saying goes
And as to what the future holds
Nobody really knows

I used to think I'd drift forever
Upon life's empty sea
On a vessel with no sails or steam
No one to rescue me

I'd lost all hope of loving again
And waited for death to concede
When in a dream I saw her face
Revealed so mystically

****************

Now as I lie here by her side
All I can do is sigh
Good things DO come to those who wait
PATIENCE PERSONIFIED

Thank you Lone Wolf for the title and challenge  


 I lie awake in a world filled with dreams,
but dreams can be so real when you don't know you're asleep
