In these moments, I miss you.
During these nights, a melancholy sets in.
I forget to look ahead
And I only see what once was.
Your face illuminates my inattention
And your emotions fill my dreams.
I am transported to the moment
When I failed to say goodbye.
I see myself hidden in the grains of those walls,
Watching from within the cracks,
And all I can focus on is your face,
Your eyes, your touch, your grace.
In these moments I miss you
And I’d give anything to hold you,
To protect you, let you protect me,
To once again feel safe.
