No Longer

I am no longer waiting for a special occasion; I burn the best candles on ordinary days.
I am no longer waiting for the house to be clean; I fill it with people who understand that even dust is Sacred.
I am no longer waiting for everyone to understand me; It's just not their task
I am no longer waiting for the perfect children; my children have their own names that burn as brightly as any star in the galaxy..
I am no longer waiting for the other shoe to drop; It already did, and I survived it all.
I am no longer waiting for the time to be right; the time is now.
I am no longer waiting for the mate who will complete me; I am grateful to be so warmly, tenderly held.
I am no longer waiting for a quiet moment; my heart can be stilled whenever it is called.
I am no longer waiting for the world to be at peace; I unclench my grasp and breathe peace in and out.
I am no longer waiting to do something great; being able to carry my grain of sand is enough.
I am no longer waiting to be recognized; I know that my value.
I am no longer waiting for Forgiveness; I forgive myself.
