Half a Glass of Water by R. Gerry Fabian

     Life doesn't always float on clouds
     sometimes, it wakes you up 
     two hours late
      or it
      leaves you by the side of the road
      in a thunderstorm.
      It can be more of a cold shower
      or
     an empty roll of toilet paper.


      Life plays long shots
      and leaves you
      with kiss expectations
      long after the emotion
      has run away.
     It leaves you waiting
      and
      soon discovering
      that dinner for one
     has become the rule
      rather than the exception.
      And 
     just when nothing will surprise you
      anymore,
     life sneaks up behind you
      and gives you that much needed hug
      while flashing a smile
      that says so much more
     than a smile has a right to.
