The vision tarries, though the seed be planted.
Anticipation looms large as ordinary days lumber on.
No fretting, no sweating, only deep pensive moments
linger sweet on the tip of my soul.
I have but one Love, one Goal, one strong Passion.
There is only one Allegiance of my heart.
One Road alone leads to the Bliss.
My eyes strain to behold this gleaming Jewel,
Shimmering just beyond the veil that shrouds clear sight.
It is enough to know what awaits.
This mere glimpse grants a profound peace
and my world-weary steps are once again enlivened.
I leap to join the soldier’s stride.
