Do you know what it's like to want something so bad that you can't even pray for it... all you can say is, "Please, God"?
And you tell yourself again and again that it will all happen in God's perfect timing. That He is maturing and perfecting me in the process of waiting. That He is my satisfaction and completeness and peace, whether the awaited-event comes or not.
But it doesn't make it any easier.
"Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for the Lord."
