Dying Will Be Easy

I have been bothered all day by this deep
longing and desire to have you here.
I want to know that you are out,
but on your way back soon.
You are delayed but just phoned to tell me you are trying
your hardest and you will be home soon
and that you miss me.
But the phone never rings
and I know she is far away and no where near.
She doesn’t know when she is coming home.
Maybe never.
