Wait your turn

 

When you ask,

the good Lord,

the light on you,

to shine.

Because, trouble’s,

come to visit,

well, perhaps,

it’s not your time.

But, do not,

lose the faith,

in that,

of which, you know.

For, like all things,

they come, and then,

they go.

Do not, despair,

in any way,

when life,

has you down.

He’ll smile,

again, upon you,

when your turn,

comes, around.
