Stop…Wait , Listen
Are you there?
Hello? Can’t you hear me calling you?
You said you’d always be there for me.
Did things change?
What did I do wrong?
I can’t see you,
But I can feel your presence.
Your there. I know you hear me.
Why don’t you reply.
You only reply with actions that I don’t understand.
I am sorry I am so impatient.
It is just how I am a part of my soul.
Yet I am beginning to understand.
I’m horrible at listening.
But if I want you to listen to me
Then I must listen to you.
I will try very hard to listen and pay attention.
Is it okay if I ask questions?
I won’t interrupt.
I will Stop…, Wait. Listen.
Then you will do the same for me.
Ok. I’m ready.
I’m ready to stop, wait, and listen.
