As you got up this morning

As you got up this morning,
I watched you,
and hoped you would talk to me,
even if it was just a few words,
asking my opinion or thanking me
for something good that happened
in your life yesterday.
But I noticed you were too busy,
trying to find the right outfit to wear.
When you ran around the house getting ready,
I knew there would be a few minutes
for you to stop and say hello,
but you were to busy.
At one point you had to wait,
fifteen minutes with nothing to do
except sit in a chair.
Then I saw you spring to your feet.
I thought you wanted to talk to me
but you ran to the phone and called a friend
to get the latest gossip instead.
I watched patiently all day long.
With all your activities
I guess you were too busy to say
anything to me.
I noticed that before lunch you looked around,
maybe you felt embarrassed to talk to me,
that is why you didn't bow your head.
You glanced three or four tables over
and you noticed some of your friends
talking to me briefly before they ate, but you didn't.
That's okay.
There is still more time left,
and I hope that you will talk to me yet.
You went home and it seems as if
you had lots of things to do.
After a few of them were done,
you turned on the TV.
I don't know if you like TV or not,
just about anything goes there
and you spend a lot of time
each day in front of it
not thinking about anything,
just enjoying the show.
I waited patiently again
as you watched the TV and ate your meal,
but again you didn't talk to me.
Bedtime I guess you felt too tired.
After you said goodnight to your family
you plopped into bed and fell asleep in no time.
That's okay because you may not realize
that I am always there for you.
I've got patience,
more than you will ever know.
I even want to teach you how
to be patient with others as well.
I love you so much that I wait
everyday for a nod, prayer or thought
or a thankful part of your heart.
It is hard to have a one-sided conversation.
Well, you are getting up once again.
And once again I will wait,
with nothing but love for you.
Hoping that today you will give me some time.
Have a nice day!
Your friend,
