To Waiting

You spend so much of your time
expecting to become
someone else
always someone
who will be different
His-Shadowsomeone to whom a moment
whatever moment it may be
at last has come
and who has been
met and transformed
into no longer being you
and so has forgotten you
meanwhile in your life
you hardly notice
the world around you
lights changing
sirens dying along the buildings
your eyes intent on a sight you do not see yet
not yet there
as long as you ,
are only yourself
with whom as you
recall you were
never happy
to be left alone for long
