I Miss You
Missed Connections from Rhode Island
I miss getting lost with you.
I miss your cooking.
I miss your jokes.
I miss your playing.
I miss your sarcasm.
I miss your support.
I miss your freckles.
I miss your stares.
I miss your laugh.
I miss your coffee.
I miss your car.
I miss our adventures.
I miss watching bad TV with you.
I miss watching you with your son.
I miss seeing you smile, hearing you laugh.
I miss watching you dance.
I miss sharing funny internet things with you.
I miss having a true friend in you.
I miss knowing you’ll be there.
I miss you trusting me.
I miss your wit.
I miss your texts.
I miss playing board games with you.
I miss your music.
I miss being a part of your life.
I miss your New York.
I miss your company.
I miss our coffee outings.
I miss our breakfasts, our lunches, our dinners.
I miss sitting in un-awkward silence with you.
I miss sharing hopes and dreams with you.
I miss trying new things with you.
I miss your writing.
I miss YOU.
I’m sorry. I hope you can forgive the past.
I care about you and always, always will.
One Year Ago: Lovelorn Poet in NYC: Prayer Haiku
Her Two Cents from the Missed Connections Chief Bottle-Finder:
Take a moment and think about someone who is no longer a part of your life – or better yet, think about someone who currently is. What would you miss most about them? Come up with a list, just like our Providence poet did, and you’ll soon see just how different things would be if they weren’t around.
