I'll Wait For You

I grew up listening to the songs “Wait For Me” by Rebecca St. James. In my quest to find love I often reflected on her words.

Darling did you know that I
I dream about you
Waiting for the look in your eyes
When we meet for the first time
Darling did you know that I
I pray about you
Praying that you will hold on
And keep your loving eyes only for me

Darling did you know I dream about life together
Knowing it will be forever
I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine
And darling when I say
Till death do us part
I’ll mean it with all of my heart
Now and always faithful to you

Now I know you may have made mistakes
But there’s forgiveness and a second chance
So wait for me
Darling wait for me
Wait for me
wait for me

Chorus:
Cause, I am waiting for
Praying for you darling
Wait for me too
Wait for me as I wait for you
Cause, I am waiting for
Praying for you darling
Wait for me too
Wait for me as I wait for you
Darling wait
Darling wait

Every time I got close to finding a guy I’d be disappointed because he wasn’t even close to being my dream. There was one guy about 8 years ago I thought was supposed to be the one. But he left me hurting and broken. I regretted everything I said and did.

And those letters I wrote him.

Back then I didn’t know yet that I was a writer, but I now understand why I felt so outraged that I wasted my words on someone who didn’t deserve it.

Skip to now.

I was invited to the P4CM (Passion 4 Christ Movement) by my friend Oraia Speaks. I went to LA and used my special pass to sit a few rows away from the front.

It’s super cool to look back.

That was my last month as a single person.

But I didn’t know it yet.

At the event, I heard Janette…ikz speak on “Waiting” for her future spouse. Can I tell you that I’ve gained more recognition from my two second cameo appearance in her You Tube video than any of my speaking videos or talks? I love this! She pretty much summed up everything in my single heart on waiting for my future husband.

Marc asked me out a few short weeks after the event.

And like Janette said…his name was not Luke Warm!

To all the single ladies (and gents). Listen and be encouraged in the waiting!

  1. I’m not a big fan of spoken-word, but that poem was great! I like the line about the biological clock, ’cause I’ve been hearing a lot of comments about that lately (my fiancee’s turning 31 next week). But just like Jeanette Ikz says, God is the author of time.

  2. @Travis – spoken word is AMAZING if it’s done by someone who knows what they’re doing–like Jeanette Ikz. She’s really good.

    Welp! I must say this poem keeps coming around to smack me in the face!

    Everytime I here this poem and all the things she says about the faux “The One” make me think of the guy I’m dating… I just don’t know how to end it! 🙁 I’ll figure somehting out! I can’t go into the New Year in this relationship!

    Great blogpost!
