“I Miss You”
To see you when I wake up
Is a gift I didn’t think could be real.
To know that you feel the same as I do
Is a three-fold, Utopian dream.
You do something to me that I can’t explain.
So would I be out of line if I said ‘I miss you?’
I see your picture.
I smell your skin on
The empty pillow next to mine.
You have only been gone ten days,
But already I’m wasting away.
I know I’ll see you again
Whether far or soon.
But I need you to know that I care,
And I miss you.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
