When you walked through that door,
I knew that I would miss you badly.
Though you blew a kiss my way,
I knew that for me, it wasn't enough.
If you were going, why did you leave?
My day was not the same without you.
My meals did not taste the same.
My nap was short, and very fitful.
I couldn't even write my stories--
everything is different without you.
And here it is, nightfall has come.
I wonder where you are right now.
I know that I miss you so very much.
I hope you are safe in your journey,
and that you come home to me very soon.
