My Thanks














Contentment

I've waited.
I've pined.
Cried out and then in.
Awakened from a dream you were finally here.
Thrown stuff away looking for you.
Bought things for the same reason.

You've been quiet.
You've been steady.
Awakened, nudged, and left alone.
Almost thrown away
And then decorated
All the while standing not there but

here

right in the middle
willing
me to see you
I see you.

You are here.

I am asking you in.
You may stay as long as you'd like
and then longer
because I'm sure we will be here again
but not soon.
No not soon.
I am asking you in.
