I Miss You

You are gone,

You told us you would be.

We tried,

We tried so hard,

To comfort and hold,

But you didn’t want it.


You had a plan,

and you did it.

I miss you.

I miss giving you first choice of the doughnuts.

I miss hearing about your week.

I miss your smile.

I just miss you.


I miss you joking,

About how my tattoos,

Were a way to cover the pain.

About how,

It was just another mask.

I think about it,

and you,

and our coffee.


I hope you are in a better place,

I hope I see you there one day.

I hope we can laugh again.

I miss you.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
