I only miss one…

on 3 May, 2007

yes it’s true.

I realized I miss someone everyday.
But, it’s only one of them.
I miss them for different reasons.

When I’m at school
I catch myself gazing out a window
or watching a small child.

Sometimes it is a sign
or a rock.

But, I find it is only one of them I miss.
I wonder if I should feel guilty.
I don’t miss the same one everytime.
They get a pretty fair rotation.

I came home and gave my oldest the biggest of hugs
and kisses because today I really missed him.

    ((hugs)) I think that’s normal. I think it happens b/c we’re caught in a moment that would be perfectly shared with just one of them, given how they are each different.
