Waiting Room (Written March 23)

Waiting Room


As he paces in cramped circles,

Over and over, in the little room

On the fifth floor, as he hears


The nurses at their station, talking,

Soothing someone else’s fears,

As he sees the snow,


As light as confetti, falling

Softly in the window,

And the hills across


The white, frozen lake,

As he waits for his wife

To return, or not to return,


He knows that his life

Is changed and fate, stern

Fate, is his to accept, or not.
