sorry and thank you

the world will take
my someone away
and leave me to mourn
until she returns

but although i cook
and i clean, and i write
and send cover letters
to greedy employers

i do not deserve
i do not belong
so "sorry and thank you"
is all i can say

when the stars come out
and she comes back home
she says "sorry and thank you
i hope i'm enough"

so we hold each other
and we share the same thought:
"i'm scared that this sadness
might never go away"
