TOUCHING BASE WITH IRONY

Amazing you should call now,

Wanting me.

Where were you when my bed was cold,

The theater seat beside me stayed empty,

When I needed my tears dried?

Where were you?

How ironic you should call now

Wanting me.

Where were you when a secret had to be told,

My long hair needed combed,

When your hug would have made all the difference?

Amazing.

Now that another makes my breakfast,

Discovers my ticklish spots, fixes my broken plumbing,

Takes me to the grocery on wintry days.

You call, wanting me.

Amazing.
