Let them wait.
The day is long,
but life is short.
And how you live this day
will spell the quality
of your life.

Let them wait,
for you have nothing
but yourself
to give.
And they deserve
the best version of you.

Let them wait
and enjoy their coffee
as you did,
as you do,
and cherish the long, breaking
orange sun
and the deep shadows it lends
your hands and fingers,
making your every gesture
seem important, significant,

Let them wait,
you do not own your time
(no one does),
but you own
what you choose to do with it.
So wait.
