I miss you terribly. I look for you in everyone and I hate that.
You're nowhere nearby and I pretend I'm okay with it.
You told me you knew that I worry and that I get sad when you leave.
I held my tears in and denied it so you wouldn't feel bad
But you're right

I can never tell you the truth because the words won't come out.
my heart gets smaller
as the days
without
you
go
by
and yet, I'm here waiting for you
L.J.
