Standing by the Window

It’s been raining for three days....
There’s dishes in the sink....
The cat is sleeping soundly, dreaming....
Bills have yet to be paid....
The mailman delivered a letter today,
asking how you were.
Work in the morning,
Four more hours....
The bed is much too cold.

One day--
An hour--
Just one moment
One look....
I stand by the window.

Lawn needs mowing...
Maybe I should go for a ride....
240,000 miles out of my reach!
You said you would return.

Two months, one week, three days
and counting.
God I wish I could fly!


Maybe if I look longer, harder
if I wait by the door....
I miss you.
I love you.
Do you think of me?
I miss you.

In the darkness I wonder if you’re asleep...
Your dreams finally came true!
I am so proud of all you have become,
I’ll never ask you to stay.

But, I need you.
I really really need you.
I need you.
I really need you.
I really really need you.
I need you.
