Waiting for Today
By Jennifer Kiley

waiting for today
is it future or is it past
has it happened somewhere else
or will the day forever last

how long have i been waiting
for this day to just begin
the day that is arriving
should be exciting in the end

this day is not a particular day
i’ve been waiting far too long
for this day to get here right now
i must hold on i must be strong

i wonder what about today
keeps me waiting for it anyway
i assume i’ve been waiting long
with a long anticipation

it could cause excitability
imagine my surprise
when i found out that
i’ve been waiting for so long

you would think i’d understand it
know more about it if i could
let me think about it just a moment
someone special is arriving or they should

or is someone i know returning
from a visit far away
have i not seen them for sometime
is that why i want to stay

should i hesitate and wonder
if what’s coming is expected
something’s happening as i’m waiting
with quite intense anticipation

it could just as easily be
that i am waiting for today
with great fear and trepidation
one wonders just what’s on its way

people assume when you are waiting
something good is going to happen
when it could just as well be
something bad just as well could happen

on that day for which you’re waiting
so patiently or just the opposite
so tired impatiently portraying
waiting for days with palpatations

gatsby poe & parker gazing while still carter waiting

most feel that way on Christmas eve
do i have a day like that waiting
makes me feel absolutely wicked
maybe it’s a day my lover’s creating

who knows what we have planned
smoking a joint toward relaxation
a glass or two or three of wine
to release the expectations

the part that we were lovers set
is more than I should know just yet
but that specific day could make it so
now that is a day i’d wait for welcomely

i’d pleasurably wait for any day
to have a day of being with you
could be today there’s some great news
arrives in an email the numbers came through

that you are winning some serious money
that you just don’t know what to do
there are friends you want to give some to
help to make their dreams come true

is it that kind of day i’m waiting on
that sounds pretty special what dreams will come
what other days do you dream for
that may be waiting outside your door

do you want a film script accepted soon
starring someone you dream of who makes you swoon
playing the lead who would you chose
would it be nicole kidman or someone else that’s new

how about parker posey she makes you laugh
what about a director now that altman is gone
chose woody allen want diane keaton to come along
they’ve not worked together in films for so long

it’s your fantasy movie do whatever you want
i know mister allen has worked in paree
but it makes such a setting what about tuscany
if i chose diane keaton we could still have nicole

we’d make it a lesbian fantasy with a love theme and all
it would make no difference what your preference might be
you’d love anybody that you fell in love with just not me
man or a woman there’s no reason why

it could be same sexes or the other way round
what’s important to be happy is the film’s touched the ground
your dreams would come true your day may never have arrived
so while waiting for today you know you have survived

    “Have you not done tormenting me with your accursed time! It’s abominable! When! When! One day, is that not enough for you, one day he went dumb, one day I went blind, one day we’ll go deaf, one day we were born, one day we shall die, the same day, the same second, is that not enough for you? They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it’s night once more.” ~ Samuel Beckett, Waiting for Godot ~
