You Are The Reason - Poem by Cordell Rich

I will sit here quietly in this box
Reading the shadows cast on the walls around me.
I will watch the sun pass overhead
Counting the hours until you remember me.
And if I get tired of waiting,
I will read the letters you've sent me once again.
Even though I know every line you ever wrote,
I will never forget the first four words you sent to me.
'You are the reason...'
And although there have been many other words
These four words
Sum up all that is important to me.
