It’s been a while since you’ve been gone
Not gone for good but to me it feels you’ll never return.
A single day away from you, for me is just too long.
Through reminiscence and flashbacks,
In my thoughts I’m holding on to the pieces of you I can.
I still feel so close to you, even with the countless miles between us.
I find myself reading your texts when I’m bored,
Overcome with emotions that won’t pass
listening to your voice notes when in a while I haven’t called.
I’m always lost in moments of silent reflection
I hear a knock and my heart skips a beat thinking it’s you at the door
I realize at times I should offer you my trust instead of my protection.
The extent to which I miss you, my words couldn’t truly show.
