Winding Down


Day stops, slows, and here we are.  Been waiting for this, no obligation but to be with him, listen to his new words and reactions and demands, sighs–  nothing else I need in the moment, just him, whether it involve quiet or conversation, I’m eased, whole, peaced.  His expression has changed since I saw him last, this morning, when he told me not to leave not to go to work to just stay home and watch his cartoons.  I should have listened, but here we are.
