What Does My Spirit Long For?

Can I long for something I already have?

What does my spirit long for?
Can I long for something I already have?
I have my best friend,
my most wonderful traveling companion,
my joy in laughter and silence,
my comfort in sadness and loss,
my wisecracking couch-mate as we watch TV shows and movies.
Can I be hungry when I’m already sated?
