In all my years waiting has not changed

It makes no difference what I’m waiting for

A table for two or a home pregnancy test

Waiting takes no sides, never plays favorites  

The second hand continues to move just like
it has ever since it was first set in motion

Digital or analog, one second is one second

In a waiting room or waiting in line

It will arrive right when it’s supposed to

Not one second sooner

And I’ve never been the same when it finally shows up.
