    I miss you

    I
    reached
    out to touch you
    a few times,
    but
    missed

    I
    want you
    to know you're in the heart
    and on the mind of
    Someone

    Almost all the time

    I hope
    the thought of
    that hug you tenderly
    as it does me

    I miss you
    and...
    it
    would
    make my day
    to know

    I'm missed too

    sometimes...
    life offers us
    gifts...most dear
    gifts we fear
    losing.

    choosing
    instead
    to hang on tight
    ...to hold on
    to what's right

    and
    like
    those who miss them
    they are missed,
    too.

    I miss the us we used to be
    those "all night conversations"
    that brought thrills to me
    could it ever be
    as simple as those hugs
    that brought joy
    to me?

    you are missed,
    too.

    Hello Baller, it's always a good treat when what I do springs a flow from you and icing on the cake, to be missed too! :)

    Thank you!

    Your heart
    Called out to me
    Awakening me from my slumber
    I've been gone too long
    Never meant to neglect you
    But in the midst of missing me
    Your soul kissed mine
    And
    The Lighthouse shines again
    In search
    Of thee
