Just To Say Hello

At the end of a bath
when your eyes are closed
when you take that
one last breath
and move forward

Right as you stand up
and the water begins to run
as you rinse the soap off your body

Right after the quiet
when suddenly
the loudest sound in the room
is the water hitting the floor

Right when the cat has given up
on trying to unlock the door
just so she could come in
to say hello.
