Today

But seriously. I miss you. But where are my presents?

today
like
every other day

i failed
i stumbled
i faltered

you see
for most of the day
I kept my mind busy
dodging from task to task
busy little worker bee
doing those things
that so often keep me from
fully dreaming of you

but then
I remembered something
missing
gave my mind a chance
to rest long enough
to happen upon traces of you
drifting through my mind
always

wisps of you
lingering like mist
over my heart
and there’s an aching
and a longing
and a missing you

utterly

and
so it settled
this shroud 
of missing you

can you hear my heart
longing
pleading
calling out

when is that girl getting back with my presents?
