I Will Wait

I Will Wait

The battle rages on.

My mind flips,
from this page
to that page.

In my feeble strength
I fight back the tears
that remind me of
our sour memories.

Still I linger on
the hope of promised
sweet tomorrow’s.

The battle rages on.

Tonight
I want to fight
and win I must.

My fate is mine
and mine to change.

This hope I have
leads me on.

The moon is here,
my sole comfort it is.

I will wait,
hoping bliss lies ahead.
Yesterday reeks of hate,
tomorrow I’d meet my mate.

    “My fate is mine
    and mine to change”

    The above reminds me of the last stanza of the famous poem ‘Sol Invictus’ by W. E Henley:

    “It matters not how strait the road
    How charged with punishment the scroll,
    I’m the master of my fate
    The captain of my soul”

    Nice one
