waiting in anticipation

As I eagerly anticipate
my family’s return
in a few month’s time,
yearning for the warmth a full house can bring,
so do I eagerly anticipate
the day of my departure from this earth,
when my last fight will cease
and I rest in the everlasting
light of God’s presence.

It’s very tough,
but I tell myself
“just a few more months”:
so amidst the sorrowful trials
of this life,
I tell myself
“just a few more years”.
