Come!

It was 2:54am
Daddy came to my room
And he shook me awake
You were ready to come

A long but short drive
To the hospital
To the room where time stopped
You had not yet come.

Now 8:26am
I wasn't in school
We were waiting for you
Come baby, come.

Lunch came around
I anxiously ate
Somehow tasteless potato chips
Selena, why haven't you come?

Now it's 9:04pm
We flip through the channels
Watch an hour of "Top Gear"
But you had not come

11:34pm, I see
A text message on the phone
"She's here!" with a picture
You had come.

I held you for the first time
Nothing mattered but us
You and me in the world of a hospital room
Here you are.
