Almost

Yes, I wanted to see you today;
So, I looked at your picture and said,
“Wake up, wake up, you sleepyhead!”
But, you didn’t even blink your eyes.
Just sat there looking oh so wise.

And I wanted to hear you today,
So I picked you up and heard—–
Nothing, not one single word.

But a scent was there
Of a warm and rosy breath of air
And I knew,
I knew that you were almost,
Almost, almost there.
