US Visa

Since 2007 until now, I'm waiting for my employment visa in the US. I hope it will come soon.
I've been waiting for my US visa,
Seven years now, I have no idea,
I've worked from Saudi to Kuwait,
Yet I'm still eager to wait.

I thank the God of all gods,
I'm very much alive,
Somehow, I manage to survive,
Against all odds.

Loneliness changes my life,
Years I've never seen my wife,
Here in the Middle East,
I have to live like a priest.

Night and day I pray,
Begging she's just okay,
Each day I check the Visa Bulletin,
Yes! The long waiting is now certain!
