When you’re not here.

I feel alone.
So cold at night.
My arms empty.
My world too.
No laughter.
No smiles.
Nothing but an empty space.
Yes we talk.
But oh so short.
Fleeting chances on the phone.
Pictures help but not a lot.
Smiles frozen in time.
No feet to warm.
No back to rub.
No smile to light my day.
I miss your loving hugs so much.
But when you come.
I hear the door.
I know right then.
What I’m in for.
Those eyes.
A smile.
A hug.
A laugh.
And love.
