sunrise over range

I am waiting for the moment
When I hear your footsteps
I’ve been waiting a long time    

The sun moves slowly   
I think it ran into trouble  
Stars are still standing in their usual places 

Clouds are moving irregularly in front of the moon
For a short time, moon exudes its shine towards me
The sound of water in the brook at our house is like my heartbeat —

Going along as it always does
As I wait for early sunrise to open my door,
For you to come into my room

And open my window of hope.
Finally my long wait has ended
I don’t know when it happened.
