I laid in my bed the other night
-With the silver and golden glow of the lamps on the sheets-
And I pretended that you were lying with me.
We were at arms length from each other
Our words keeping us warm despite
I said how unbelievable it was that you were here with me right now
And that you'd stay with me till morning light
But the lights had to go out
My Heart gave a sigh
It wasn't sad, but the yearning dug its way back
When I finally woke up, of course, you weren't
I went about my day as usual
But ever since the summer started
There hasn't been a day that I haven't thought
But what's there to miss?
A voice chimes in my head
All we have are a few awkward 'Hi's'
A couple of games
A study session where I thought my heart would
And a few other things I'd rather not mention
I miss the days where you'd walk down the
halls and, for a fleeting moment, I'd pass you
I miss stealing glances at you in class
And then turning away quickly whenever I thought
you were looking my way
I miss your eyes
The shades of willow leaves and mint
The color of eternal spring in your gaze
I miss the sound of your voice
Somethig so soft and low that I can't even
find the words to describe it
All I know is that it reminds me of caramel
with its tender and comforting flavors
And I miss your smile
A nice little array of square pearls
That pull your lips into a goofy grin
that makes my heart melt.
I miss you!
I just miss you!
And I don't know what's going on but the
thought of being apart from you for a year
almost makes me wanna cry.
Because I've told God I wanna be with you.
And I know he listens.
He listens and he speaks:
So He'll tell me to let you go
Or we'll be strung together into a wonderful tapestry.
But for now:
I want to laugh with you
Walk and talk with you
Settle down a heated argument and remember
that we're friends after all
I want to be there when you shed your tears
And I want you to be there when I shed mine
I want to remember God with you
To be reminded of His love for us and how it
relates to us.
I want to know your story
And for you to know mine.
And to say "I love you" with all sincerity
But for now
I'll just wait.
