Something’s Coming

Something’s Coming

Could be!

Who knows?
There’s something due any day;
I will know right away,
Soon as it shows.
It may come cannonballing down through the sky,
Gleam in its eye,
Bright as a rose!

Who knows?
It’s only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Under a tree.
I got a feeling there’s a miracle due,
Gonna come true,
Coming to me!

Could it be? Yes, it could.
Something’s coming, something good,
If I can wait!
Something’s coming, I don’t know what it is,
But it is
Gonna be great!

With a click, with a shock,
Phone’ll jingle, door’ll knock,
Open the latch!
Something’s coming, don’t know when, but it’s soon;
Catch the moon,
One-handed catch!

Around the corner,
Or whistling down the river,
Come on, deliver
To me!
Will it be? Yes, it will.
Maybe just by holding still,
It’ll be there!

Come on, something, come on in, don’t be shy,
Meet a guy,
Pull up a chair!
The air is humming,
And something great is coming!
Who knows?
It’s only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Maybe tonight . . .

Did you watch the train to Washington?  What a thrill.  When they did the slow roll thru some smaller towns, I cried.  I bet the people along the route did too.  I had NO idea I would be so eagerly awaiting this man’s arrival in our nation’s capitol.

Tuesday cant come soon enough!  Let the work begin.

    Do you know when I cried? This morning watching the kids that are going to perform. They are so invigorated and hopeful. And it is so heart-warming to see the younger generations (yes plural) involved in our political system.

    Gayle,

    Having become cognizant of the political world during the Nixon admin. I have to say that I didn’t recognize what I was feeling at first…hope.

    Gayle – although I did not vote for Obama, and am still unsure of what his policies will bring, I am none-the-less caught up in the democracy of America and the excitement of the inauguration. We all need to come together behind our president, whoever he may be, for the time he is there. Mr. Obama is MY president, and I will respect him, I will pray for him, and I will hope with all my heart that he is successful!! Policies aside, I am very proud that an African American man can be elected in this country. We can now dare to hope that racial prejudice can be put aside for the greater good of us all – we are one America. God bless America and our new President.

    I love your post. Three of my four nephews will be at the inauguration. What a life changing experience for them. One is middle school, one is high school, and the oldest is out of college. I say bring it on – let’s get going on fixing our nation.
