Grammatical construction

I'm curious about the grammatical construction of this sentence:  I am glad you are here.  It appears to contain 2 independent clauses, which doesn't seem right (no conjunction) .  Possibly "that" is understood which would make the second clause dependent, but again, that really doesn't seem right either.  I've tried diagramming it, but I can't make it work properly.  I guess I'm just missing something.  I'm betting someone here can explain this sentence's construction.  Thanks for your help.
