Missed Connections in Athens, GA
Will you remember the significance of this day? Did you think of it at any point today? Things did not happen today the way I had hoped and the changes that I wanted will not take place. I still plan to make my life my own beginning now.
There are still so very many things that I want to know about your life. Will you ever share them with me? Will you still look at me with the kindness that I have seen from you? Do you ever think of me and wish like I do that we were together? Do you ever hope when you get into bed at night that you would wake beside me?
My schedule has changed so I rarely run into you anymore. Do you ever look for me? I still look for you to walk through the door at any time and I am so disappointed when you don’t. Maybe next time…..
NOTE FROM THE MISSED CONNECTIONS CHIEF BOTTLE FINDER:
Most of us have at least a few dates that are of significance. Some of these can be so powerful that we remember them for decades while other fade away with time. Regardless, how we memorialize that day is deeply personal, and no two people – even if they shared in the experience – encounter it the same way. It’s not easy feeling like you’re the only one who holds the memory. Sorry, poet.
