“Waiting”: A Poem

 

Waiting

 

In the hospital,

I wait.

In the room

I wait.

Alone.

In the middle

of the night,

I wait.

The nurses,

They go by.

They don’t stop.

Won’t tell me

About you.

If you’re okay.

Won’t tell me

If I’m okay.

Because,

How can I be okay

Without you?

I wait.

I tap and I wait.

I bounce my knee,

And I wait.

They called me.

An accident.

I came.

The world in a blur as I came.

Ran to you. Sped to you.

As fast as I could.

But, too late.

They said ‘wait”.

So, I sit. Tap. Bounce. Pray.

And I wait.

Without you.

Here.

I am here.

Waiting.

To find out if I am

Without you.

If I am forever

Alone.

  1. Love this. Favorite lines, “Here. I am here.” Felt like I was there too. Great job.
