Do you miss me the way I miss you
It’s only been a few days
But last week already feels
Like too many years ago.
Do you think of me
Before you sleep like I think of you?
Do you imagine me in your arms
Safe secure and feeling of home?
I miss you babe more than you can know.
And in my mind I’m holding you
And savouring the feeling
Of being in your arms again.
Do you miss me love
Like how I’m missing you?
I pray it’s not too much
For your heart to take.
And I know you’d think
This is a bit odd & strange
But every night I tell God
To keep you extra safe.
So once again here I am tonight
Fumbling awkward words to pray,
“Dear God, this is me …
You know who I am…
I just need higher powers that be
To really look out for the ones I love
And also for all those struggling…
Give them new breathe, quite literally.
We need your peace and healing help,
Deep hope and kindness especially now.
And I know this is seemingly small
But since I can’t tell him in person myself
Would you please tell my love a message?
Tell him I miss him so very very much.
Amen and Amen.”
