The Grey Matters

I Said I’m Here

I Said I’m Here

By Melinda Williams

You called out       to me

I said     I’m here

you shouted out my name

in the day

then at night

I said     I’m here

You went sailing on a sea

so very far away

You sent a message

I said     I’m right here

You cried and shouted

I matched your efforts

And screamed     I’M HERE!

And I’m still here

You fumbled and fell

I did hear your yell

And said yet again

I’m

Right

Here

But here is no good

When your biggest fall

Was nowhere at all near

I’m right here

Meant nothing at all

When you needed me

there.
