Anticipation welling—
And I expect no one;
In the lit shadows
I watch as the doorbell
Sheds its inaudible

To bloom unseen;
He'll suddenly appear

Coming as if to forgive
All he gives to death,
Coming to assure me
Of his reward and mine,
Coming as anodyne
For my pain, for his—
Perhaps his whisper is
