Waiting



An avalanche of laundry
Lies in the hallway,
Waiting.

Unwritten overdue Thank You letters
Sit on the desk,
Waiting.

Christmas decorations and Wrapping paper,
Of all colors,
Closed up in a box,
Waiting.

Waiting, dang it.

A lone baby sock
With monkeys,
Rests in my hands,
Stirring memories of Benjamin

With his sweet baby kisses.
While I hold this sock,
Every other thing can just


Wait.


Here are some other things Benjamin left behind:

  2. Lovely. Guess you need to put them in a box and send them back. They're all too small by next week.

  3. Absolutely! Enjoy your moments and memories. Laundry only needs to be done when you run out of underwear.
