Incandescent joy
This is not a ploy
Happiness today
Hold it not at bay
Let the light so glow
Everyone will know
Seems I cannot wait
Jitters won't abate
Patience workable
Be still oh my heart
Carry on your part
Feelings shan't prate
It's well worth the wait

I wanted to go ahead and post this because I'll be busy every day of this week. I'm sure this poem is relatable. :P How many of us have had something undeniably wonderful that we had to wait for, whether it's a Friday night concert, a special date, a trip to a special place, your first flight, your birthday, or whatever it may be. The joy and excitement are definitely surreal. :) I'm looking forward to a road trip to see some really dear friends in a couple of weeks and I am absolutely excited. :) I hope you enjoy!
