I Wait by S. Bhandari

By S. Bhandari

When the clouds rumbled,

I hoped it was sunny where you lived.

                                                                                                   When the ground began to shake,

                                                                                               I hoped your haven was still upright.

When the wind began to take control,

I hoped your shirts were still on the clothesline.

                                                                                                                When the power went off,

                                                                               I hoped your supper was still a warm delight.

When the snow started falling,

I hoped your blankets were still dry,

                                                                                                                      Except,

                                                                                                        they weren’t,

                                                                                           they never were,

                                                                    and I had no way of

                                                          knowing.
