The Timing of Spirit

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, July 15, 2010 Under: Poetry

I sit in the quiet,

I listen for the sound,

I wait for Spirit's touch,

for angels to gather 'round.


I want to understand

why I am on the road I am

I want Spirit to guide me

I need to make a plan.


Spirit tells me "Hold on."

"You must have patience", they say.

"It's important not to rush decisions

or give things away."


"But I want it to happen now!"

I exclaim, frustrated with my plight.

"I want my plans to unfold,

why can't you give me clear sight?"


Spirit shakes their head,

a giggle about my plight.

"My dear, don't you understand?

The timing just isn't right."


I am frustrated beyond belief

I want it to happen now.

I don't know if I can wait

there is no idea of how.


Spirit whispered, "You want it in

your own time; divine timing is the key.

You must trust, wait it out,

and let your mind be free."


"It won't happen overnight

but when it does happen you'll see

it happened in perfect time and space

it happened when it was meant to be."


So I wait for perfect timing,

Spirit knows what I want and need

I let it unfold with their guidance;

and because of that, I will succeed.
