"This is my life"

In silence I wait for my only son
He works after school at the grocery store
Early each morning I send him off
I adore him more than life itself
The smell of coffee wafts through the kitchen
Dinner is on simmer-It's just chicken
Soon he will come walking in the door
We will talk and maybe find something
To laugh about together
His girlfriend will show up after dinner
Maybe we'll play a game of scrabble
I sure could use a cigarette about now
I'm trying to quit
Working late at the diner is alright
The tips are lousy but the work is steady
Life is good for me
