Wait List

I’ve been on your wait list
Far too long
I’ve been patient and longing
For a song
To be invited to the party
To belong
I’ve been on your wait list
Far too long

I’ve been standing patient
In the wings
I’ve been learning my lines
Practising
I’ve offered heart and blood here
Many things
I’ve been standing patient
In the wings

I’ve been on your wait list
For these years
Waiting for the time you turn
You appear
But this pattern’s holding
And I fear
I’ll still be on your wait list
Many years
