Waiting for You

You held my hand while I tried to burn the pictures

You stood by me as I pulled my life back together

You lay next to me as I slept through the pain

You found a way to get me dancing again

You listened to my troubles, offering me

Validation and a “real” warm chai

You reminded me to read what I like

And encouraged me to sing for my soul

While wearing flower crowns and baking a cake

You fed my love for creative expression

You were always late but always there

But now you’re gone and it’s too early


I wish I still had your wisdom and truth

Your sense of humor and humor at life

More than a year has passed and

I’m still waiting for you to show up

With chocolate and mango slices

To discuss Arundhati Roy’s new book.
