71 years ago I was a child
We stood before all, pledged the rest of our lives
He said that he loved me and built us a house
I still remember with clarity his eyes

78 years ago I grew old too fast
The men at the door pushed their way in
He told me to run but he stayed behind
I still remember with clarity his eyes

I've been waiting

7 years ago I learned to forgive
Set all the bitterness finally free
Like Jacob wrestling my own lonely night
All of these years I've been asking why

I've been waiting

Today at last you gave a reply
When this child with his parents came in
In 84 years I've never laughed for joy
The way I did when you came in

I've been waiting for you
