“Where did I go wrong?”

She called me this morning

at 6AM

to tell me she had just had a baby.

It still takes me a

minute

to realize why she isn’t laying next to me.

I hung up

mid sentence.

My sentence,

put the pillow over my face,

and waited for the soothing

drone of the alarm clock.

  1. First…WELCOME BACK! I sure missed you.

    Second…great poem. The lines, “mid sentence./My sentence” are my favourite.
