A Day Apart

A day apart and I already miss you.

We haven’t known each other long,

But it’s long enough to miss you.

You make my day a brighter place.

You uplift me with a love from God.

You inspire my energy with your invisible smile.

There are times when a day gets tough,

And a week seems like a tragedy.

But God brings people together

And they share in pleasant company.

How do you know to make me laugh?

You don’t even know me.

And if I knew you,

I would never have to wonder.

Do you miss me at all?

Do you even care what I am doing

When we are not in conversation?

Do I even cross your mind?

I hope so because I do miss you.

And even though we have spent a day apart,

It feels like an unhappy day.

May you and God share quality moments,

Your friend in Christ.

Living for the Time

Singing in the rain,
your voice seems to soar
and the only thing I can do
is reminisce and recollect
all the love we once shared,
and how much I’m missing you.

My nights are never ending,
my heart is simply shattered,
there is only one thought at mind.

Though the years have brought the tears,
and the rain seems to never cease,
I know the sun will yet shine.

So as I fight the world
for my isolated shelter,
I’ll keep living for the time
when you’re within my arms,
and you’re holding me tight,
and I know that you are mine.
