Shibaraku indicates that an action or event occurs for a short or long period, depending on context. It is also used as a greeting (ex., 3).

Please wait here for a while.
Shibaraku Nihongo o hanasanakatta node, heta ni natta.
Because I didn;t speak Japanese for a long time, I became bad at it.
Shibaraku desu ne. O-genki desu ka.
It's been quite some time since I last saw you. How have you been?
Hope this helps!
