Missing

Missing

My first thought was flippant, “Of all the things I miss the most, I miss my mind.” An oldy but a goody. Snickers loudly.

For many, Christmas is a time of family, friends, togetherness, sharing and involvement.

This ode is for those who have someone missing.

I look for you and you’re not there

A distant memory now filled with care

Oh how we loved laughed and joked

Moments in time quickly evoked

By songs or artists equally shared

A shadow of your smile lingers, flared

Long since forgotten any contretemps

Only distant thoughts of attempts

Memories made to warm the hearts

Gathered together like puzzle parts

Placed together to form a picture

Complete with form and structure

A delightful moment in time together

All the more special such an adventure

To be recalled upon a moment’s notice

Your presence in my life a bonus

You will never go missing my friend

For recollections of you forever penned

In songs and games and many refrains

Long remembered you shall remain

  1. your first thought ????, I’ve never heard it πŸ™‚
    your friend stays in you heart and memory but even if they are alive they mostly are in our hearts and memories… I think the thought that we will never see them again is so dreadful, but everything is a thought, a concept… anyhow it’s not easy
