My heart misses you.

there was a time not so long ago

that I read you to sleep

until that fidgeting quieted

we’d read about when people could fly

after the news ended and the lights were out

I would stand at your door and listen to you breathe.

my heart misses you

and I go back to that moment

not only to see your face or hear you laugh

but to hear you breathe

to hear you breathe
