As you got up this morning,
I watched and hoped you would talk to me,
even if it was just a few words,
asking about my opinion
or thanking me for something good
that happened in your life yesterday.
But I noticed you were too busy,
trying to find the right outfit to wear.
I waited to hear from you
when you ran around the house getting ready,
I thought there would be a few minutes
for you to stop and say hello,
……. but you never slowed down.
