missing you

there is an empty spot

in my heart

where once was you–

i try to fill it

with memories

(or distractions)

(or work)

(or daily routines)

but it’s just not the same–

perhaps this void

is inevitable because

if i could replace you

so easily

it would diminish

your importance

in my life

it’s been a while

since you smiled

all over us

you’ve gone missing

somewhere between

the moon & the stars–

the sky

has been asking about you

the clouds wonder

when you’ll peek out

and say hello–

come back to us

and spread a little happiness

a little brightness

for the world surely needs it
