Trying to Wait Patiently

Trying to Wait Patiently

Middle of the night
Random thoughts
Go through my mind
Some about errands
Others about the past
Then about you
And also about us
But night doesn’t cease
As thoughts maintain
Me awake thinking
Of things that must
Be left alone because
No one has influence
Except the man
Upstairs who placed
Me on this terrain
To experience events
That already happened,
The moments undergone,
And what is yet to come.
