life may grow and grow

i cannot make time go faster
and it may just mean racing to inevitable sadness

the lines on my face darken and deepen
as the waiting gets heavier and heavier

i know all the sages say
that joy is found in the here and now

it is not what will be
but what is
where happiness is hidden in plain sight

but it is a tall order
for people who do not like to watch rocks move

although maybe for me today
i can find it in the form of hope itself
hope that life may grow and grow
