Come On In [Poem]

Come On In [Poem]

Come in.
Come on in.
I’m right here.
The door is open.

Come on and sit down.
The seat is free.
This seat is available.
I was saving it.
I was saving it for you.
I knew you’d come.
I hoped you’d know.
That there was room.
Room for you.
Room for you to be.
Be right here.
Be yourself.
Be real.
Just you.

Hello Lauren, In reading your poem, the words of an old song came to mind. Perhaps you're familiar with "Come As You Are" by the group "Nirvana"? It was somewhat popular in the Nineties. Here are some of the lyrics. Maybe you can see why your poem reminded me of it. Come As you are As you were As I want you to be As a friend As a friend As an old enemy Take your time Hurry up The choice is yours Don't be late Take a rest As a friend As an old memoria Memoria Memoria Memoria
