A Gift X

Waiting in the queue
As far back as the eyes can see
I wait
And wait
To get you something
For all the things you've done for me

Priceless, you gave it free
Held my hand when sadness swept over  me
A smile at the end of a long day.
I’m paying you back in a small way

Waiting in the queue,
Tired after a long day.
Now just a few more paces to go
Imagining your face

I say
Thank you ,
For being
