You’re not here
I want you here.
     I want to hear your voice
     I want to see your face
     I want to hold your hand

I keep walking to the window to
     See if you are coming
The phone beckons.

I know it’s not yet the appointed time
We agreed. It’s almost two hours away.

I can’t wait that long.
I don’t want to wait that long.

Please call me and tell me you’re on the way.
Please just be here.
    In my arms.
