You are here

I Just Came By

Debjani Chatterjee

(with thanks to William Carlos Williams for 'This Is Just To Say')


I just came by

to look you up,

to say I’m around,


to feel needed,

to say you matter,

that together


we can do anything,

but you were not alone;

someone else had dropped by


to borrow a cup of sugar

or coffee, to say Hi,

when I came by.
