There for Me

—for L.

When someone we love is feeling other-coast lonely
and troubled by one of the ten-thousand things that occur
she’ll sometimes say, I know. I know you’re both there for me,
but it’d be nice if someone were right now here for me
………………
And I say, I know because there for me
is not as everyday wonderful as
here for me

therefore, we are sometimes sad for Me
but hear! for Me is still not in such a desperate place
as long as they’re for me
