you’re going to have to forgive me
for taking so long to reach you
but I’ve only just begun my journey

I would have started sooner, but
had never, in the past, thought
that you might be out there
had not, until now, accepted
that finding you was a possibility

so I’m sorry to have kept you waiting
and I may be a little while yet
but I just wanted to let you know
I’m on my way
