Waiting - Poem by Agnes P. Ryles Baker

These poor people in wheelchairs
Just sitting waiting,
For part of their family
to come see them,
Then they are so happy
But they come at lunchtime, -
Now what does one say,
To a loved one,
Thats been sitting waiting
For days just sitting waiting,
For days on end... waiting,
Just waiting waiting,
Now what does one say?
To a loved one just minutes
Before they leave for lunch?
We often wondered?
Glad I'm not one
Say Hello Goodbye I'll see you,
Just waiting waiting
Day after Day
