Wish I'm Waiting On

Wish I'm Waiting On

A Poem by Undying Glory
"

This is a remake of one of my earlier pieces, "This Ain't Over", about being voted off a talent show like "The X Factor", "American Idol" and so on...this is a farewell song.

"

Wish I’m Waiting On

 

 

Curtain call, the lights are fading

The final chapter of the dream I’m making

Standing here at the crossroads of the night

 

Sometimes I fall, on a wish I’m waiting on

Never stood so tall before this came and gone

Wondering if I’m ever gonna make this right

 

Always running, towards the deep blue sky

Always humming, the songs that made me cry

Like the memories of smiles and tears

While I’m waiting for the day I’ll kill all my fears

Taking a step to where no one’s gone before

 

Because it’s never over, until you walk away

Flying through storms and sun, I’ll reach my dreams someday

But I’ll always know and I’ll never forget

How you held my hand, as we walked towards sunsets

And it’s always okay, no matter what might come

Standing on the cliffs, screaming at the top of my lungs

That somehow I’ll find the strength to carry on

When it’s all dead and gone

 

Another chance has slipped me by

A final dance, into the night sky

Tomorrow I’ll wake up and wonder

If this happened at all

 

Solitary paths diverging

Yet somehow the sky’s always merging

The common dreams beyond the thunder

Awaiting us and all

 

Never standing up for myself, and my hopes

Never asking what I was meant, to go for

Knowing that there might be something better

Through the sunshine and rainy weather

And I know this is true, I’ve never felt more sure

 

Because it’s never over, until you walk away

Flying through storms and sun, I’ll reach my dreams someday

But I’ll always know and I’ll never forget

How you held my hand, as we walked towards sunsets

And it’s always okay, no matter what might come

Standing on the cliffs, screaming at the top of my lungs

That somehow I’ll find the strength to carry on

When it’s all dead and gone

 

And would we ever know, when we’re finally there

So many more got left behind?

Would we let it show, when we’re at the end

That our dreams don’t fade with time?

I’m just a kid who wanted to see

How far he could go in this life

Looking far beyond the valleys and trees

The wish I’m waiting on, I know it’s mine

 

Because it’s never over, until you walk away

Flying through storms and sun, I’ll reach my dreams someday

But I’ll always know and I’ll never forget

How you held my hand, as we walked towards sunsets

And it’s always okay, no matter what might come

Standing on the cliffs, screaming at the top of my lungs

That somehow I’ll find the strength to carry on

When it’s all dead and gone

 

CODA

Curtain call, the lights are fading

Another chapter of my life I’m making

I know I’ll never give up this fight...

Never give up the fight

Another good one, brother. Interestingly, the repeated verse/chorus really struck me the last time. I had to go back and read that they all had, "But I’ll always know and I’ll never forget/How you held my hand, as we walked towards sunsets" because for some reason it was like I hadn't read that before and it struck me as really beautiful that last time... I'm not sure why it took that long... weird.

A style point - and feel free to ignore this, it could just be me - I find a repeated line very powerful at the end and tend not to put anything after them. "When it's all dead and gone" has great finality and resonance it's a shame to put anything after it. Although, reading the words I can see why you have... Something to think about.

Breathing alone is a journey. And can be a tedious one. Your rhymes are plain but your words were heavy and quiet polished in their own raw powerful repetition.

"Because it’s never over, until you walk away.."

Confident, uplifting with a special tune. Thank you for sharing the light. Keep writing.

I love those lines! Like no matter what happens you will still continue on and move on and along the way, you don't realize it but you're growing.
