Waiting - Visitor's Poem

by Liz Gillespie
(Scotland, UK)

An empty Chair
There’s no one there
I sit and stare at the empty chair
Alone with my phone

The silence breaks
A machine awakes
The empty chair
Is still there

Not long now
A worried brow
I continue to stare
At the empty chair

Time ticks by
I hear a cry
But no one is there
In the empty chair
And still I am waiting

There’s a rip in the chair
Don’t suppose they care
because no one is there
To sit in the chair

A Passer by
They briefly nod “Hi”
They must be elsewhere
not filling the chair
and so I continue waiting

Patiently waiting in a room just for waiting
Sitting in one chair
Another over there
I stare

I hope she’s ok and knows I am there
baby’s on its way - does she know I care
And am sitting there
In a chair

A flurry of commotion
The doors fly open
It’s a Girl they announce
Back through the door they bounce
I smile
now I’m not Waiting
