She showed up on my doorstep last week
She knows the rhythm of my life well,
better than I’d realized

She knows when I need her,
even though
I don’t always recognize it myself
She sees the breaking, straining, striving
and she knows that it’s only a matter of time

She doesn’t ask to come inside
just invites herself in
and makes herself at home

Whether I pay her no attention or plenty,
she stays for her stay,
depending on the way
already planned beforehand

If I pay her no mind,
it is my loss
not hers
