I Matter



I Matter

Days
Come and go.
We wake and wave,
Greet the morning
With hope.

In days long gone, 
I recall
Waking before my family.
Hearing the milk man
At our door,
Delivering our cereal's salvation.  

I lift the blinds of my room
To meet his craggy, friendly, open face.
He returns my youthful wave 
With his own.  Exuberant!
Confirming.

I Matter . . .
