The Waiting...It's been a while since I submitted anything here.  Noticed the name change and lots of other things as well as the new faces.  It's  very early in the morning, I've been up most of of a long and sleepless night waiting...

You see, my wife is going to have cancer surgery again.  Hopefully, the third time pays all.  So I sit here, listening to the clock tick for the seconds to pass by and merge into minutes, finally to hours.  Waiting for the time to leave for the hospital...the waiting...

The worst part of all this is feeling helpless as my wife goes through an ordeal I can do nothing about...as we wait for the surgeon's sharp knife to descend...the waiting...

Hoping that finally, this will be the last time...the waiting..

Wishing it were me instead, but knowing that the world isn't how I'd wish it to be, but how G-d, B''H, intends...the waiting...
