Why am I missing you?
Why do I use these words?
Why not longing, craving, or wanting from afar?
Is it because of the times I don’t cross your path?
Like a bus I didn’t catch
Or a meeting ending just as I arrive
An elegant bird flying off in the periphery
A sock whose match cannot be found
A plane landed without you
Chests and arms un-pressed
The presence of you absent at a table
A whole set of dishes left un-dirtied
The times and places of co-existing together
In moments of joy, communion, & happiness
That don’t happen.
That can’t be found.
Is this the missed in missing?
I and you should’ve been together
But our times are separated,
In places far apart
If only time could bend
And our places were the same
I would just love and not miss you
Now I do both
