Just in Case...

December 2, 2007
By Roger Anaya, Los Alamos, NM

I wake up every day just in case
You’re laying next to me today

I stay up all night just in case
I get a glimpse of your beautiful face

I look at the moon just in case
It’s the same moon as the one at your place

I draw your lips just in case
They came to life and I could taste

I go to church and make a wish
Just in case God exists

I cry a tear just in case
The Lord felt sorry and brought you here
