Wait For Me

by Lynn White

Wait for me here.

I’ve put up a sign

so that the others

can join you

before nightfall.

Wait for me here

with the others.

There’ll be others



for someone to find them

but someone else, not me. 

Wait for me here.

Sit by the sign

so you don’t get



like the others
