Several days of waiting behind a curtain
Waiting for you to tell me
That I should come out
And play my part and be a little certain.
Some of those days were filled with sorrow
Waiting for tomorrow
As daylight rises again
And a new day begins.
Because as we walk through a more steady path
You might wonder, “Oh how it lasts.”
Because time is just an invisible clock
Ticking as the sadness inside me melts aloft.
The more the days go by
The curtain floats aside
Making small noises
As quiet as a kitten.
Just let me see
If maybe, just maybe
I can do something
That will change your act of a crybaby.
Please, I just want to let you know
That life is nothing slow
That this poem was just a note
Just to let you know
That you matter.
