When Will You Come Home? - Poem by Jon Arno

Sitting in the corner of the room so dark
Silence grips my soul …why are we apart?
My mind replays the moment that you walked away
Why did we let this happen? I wanted you to stay

The clock on the wall sets the tone for the night
The rhythm and the sound they compete with my plight
Tick.. Tock.. Tick.. Tock.. Oh how I feel alone!
Tick..Tock…Tick..Tock…When will you come home?
