Waiting – Daily Prompt

destiny-courage

There’s a little girl who waits and waits
Her friend borrowed her skates and not back for ages
Mummy will be worried sick
If she’s not back in a tick
Friend hasn’t come back yet, they’re no longer playmates

shrubbed

They’re playing hide and seek and she’s the “it”
She can’t find them, they hide well, she has to admit
It’s getting rather late
She’s got to be home by eight
She gave up looking and shouted she has to quit

sleepless

She can’t sleep, something’s bothering her
She kept on tossing and turning and then she stir
Husband’s fast asleep
She can hear the sheep
And the cat came to the room gently and purr

JNW’s Halloween Challenge: Night

tumblr_o6kzd889t51td9fzeo1_500

I waited for you all evening and you didn’t come. I wore a nice red gown, I thought you would like it. I put my hair up like what you preferred. We were supposed to celebrate the first day we met, like it was just yesterday. But the candle has burned out and you were still nowhere near me. Where were you, my beloved?

Meanwhile, the sound of the siren from the ambulance was loud and the paramedics were taking a man to the emergency room. He was hit by a car as he hurriedly crossed the street. “I’ve got to be there, she’s waiting for me,” he whispered before he lost consciousness again.

Waiting for something to happen
Don’t start the wheel of fortune
There must be something going on
The cheerleader girl is trying her baton
This way, wherever I go, I’m sure
To the beach in the blue azure
Something’s bound to happen
Majestic as the Grand Canyon
Just wait, meanwhile why not
Don’t give up and be distraught
Do something productive or fun
Play the lottery, you’ve just won
Waiting for something to come
Cherry blossoms, they’re awesome
I guess it won’t be too long to wait
Persevere, might even lose weight
Because you’re busy having a life
All the fun with nightlife

Waiting

A line of benches overlooking the sea
A line of benches overlooking the sea

Hoping for a meeting with you again
I’ve been admiring you since we were freshmen
Pigeons flutter hoping I’ll feed them
I’ve got nothing so they’re not getting their treats
Go away and leave me alone, ahem, ahem
They’ve got something over the next streets
Oh how I wish to see your beautiful face again
Your lovely smile, more so your delightful laugh
But then there’s news from the weathermen
Some atmospheric pressures from his barograph
Report says there’s pressure from the north
I need to believe in that survey
Otherwise I’ll be stuck here, mate
Still sitting on the squeaky benches
If I could see you again, I’d be happy
I’m just here on the bench by the sea

Step-Five-Arrive-Doctor-Office-Wait-Waiting-Room

Waiting at the doctor’s, do I really want to know?
And they took me away as I screamed “no!no!”
Go to school and get good grades if you want to
Kind of like having a cold and a flu
Time could be fast, time could be slow
And looking harder, I found a burr
Granny baking a cake with a dough
Cat can’t wait, you hear from her purr

grandma

She said she’ll be here
And bring me some goodies
Oh that Little Red Riding Hood
Funny little girl, always curious
Loves to smell some flowers and plants
And talks to animals if she sees one or two
Doesn’t she know that it might be dangerous?
Walking through the forest at this time
I told her to walk on the main streets
And not to take the short cut
But she’s a funny little girl
Has a mind of her own
Hope she’s here soon
I’m getting hungry

W Is For Waiting – #AtoZChallenge

Waiting, waiting for something to happen
Don’t just start the wheel of fortune
All day long, there must be something going on
The cheerleader girl is good with her baton
This way or that way, wherever I go, I’m sure
To the beach on the peaceful blue azure
Something great is bound to happen
As majestic as the Grand Canyon
Just wait and see, meanwhile why not
Please don’t give up and be distraught
Do something productive or fun
Play the lottery, you have just won
While waiting for something to come
Like cheery blossoms which are awesome
If you do so, it won’t be too long to wait
Keep at it, you might even lose weight
And I’m sure you’ll forget without it
Meanwhile why don’t you knit a mitt?
Because you’re busy having a life
All the fun with wildlife and nightlife

Waiting at the doctor’s, do I really want to know?
And they took me away as I screamed “no!no!”
Go to school and get good grades if you want to
Kind of like having a cold and a flu
Time could be fast, time could be slow
And looking harder, I found a burr
Granny baking a cake with a dough
Cat can’t wait, you hear from her purr
