Pour a Glass and Wait

There’s nothing to wait for anymore

I buy his favorite wine

And wait

I drink the white wine that I like best

Put cheese and crackers on a plate

His chair is empty

I watch the door

The threshold he will cross

No more

His favorite soda is kept

In my house

Snug between the juice and the milk

The only drink here

That never runs out

But sits waiting

Like I do

I don’t have the heart to say

He’s never coming back

For you.
