How Long

I couldn't help

but I tried.

The only way to understand

was to put words

in your mouth.

 

You stayed behind,

independently in need,

shaking hands and slow words.

 

Your question was a puzzle

of gestures I didn't understand.

Misunderstanding is

your every day.

 

I walked away and you

remained.

 

They came to find you.

How long did you wait?
