I'm in the box

I'm in the box

Hidden away in the closet
on the top shelf
is where I’ve listened to
you cry thinking there was
nothing tangible left.
Always wondering why
it was I had to leave
so soon even though
it will be seven years
this June.

Slowly over time
i’ve edged the box
to make it fall
so you will be there
in time for curtain call.
Inside is the five thousand
dollar check they paid me
for my play
the one now premiering
on Broadway.
It was to be my birthday
gift to you to say
thank you for all
the misery I put you through.
Without thinking I hid the
check and before I
could retrieve it,
the robber’s bullet hit
me in the neck.

God allowed me to see my
daughter being born
as a chorus of angels sang
that beautiful February morn.
I’ve watched as the two of
you struggle from day to day
and now it’s time for you
to put your tears away.
As the box slowly begins to fall
I can now hear the trumpet’s
last call.
It is now time for me to go
and time for you and my daughter
to go see your show.
