For a friend

This is not an unfamiliar place.  Usually waiting does not involve ballots.  Still... everything is surely different on the other side of a decision.  Different how?  Of course it remains to be seen.  For now... we wait.

This is the kind of wait
With a scheduled end.
Everyone votes this morning,
Waits until the ballots
Are tallied,
Then announced.
There may be one
Or two,
Maybe three ballots,
Perhaps even more,
But still
This is a wait
With a scheduled end.
Life will surely be different
On the other side.
Surely different.
As God wills
As God ordains.
Sunday will come again
