A Long-Awaited Letter that Almost Came.

I’m glad to hear from you.

It really means a lot to me.

I know you’ve had your difficulties.

She’s been in the hospital.

He’s been troublesome.

I would’ve loved to say you didn’t have to.

But now, it means the world.

Through everything else

all the rubble

of a disrupted

life style.

You till cared enough to wish me

a happy birthday.

 

Now I wish you hadn’t

because I’ve waited to hear from you

because “happy birthday” is all you said.

And I feel selfish and ashamed

for never expecting more.
