why he’s here

Once again she sits there,
silence and darkness keeping her company,
this time pondering if he’ll ever sing
their song.

Trains of thoughts begin
to run off track, rushing to find
the answer to a question:
is he here because
he needs her
or because he does not want to be
alone?

Then she looks up to see
his smile and feel his heartbeat
and nothing else really matters
as long as he’s
here.
