All Those Times That I’ve Missed You

I miss you,
When a faraway breeze brings with it a tune
That lingers around only to remind me of you;
When every time I close my eyes
There remains a flicker of the fairy tale we once were
With our fingers entwined;
When every time I climb a mountain
Only to breathe in the early morning mountain air,
As we did when we had climbed one together that one time;
When every time I see someone
Gripping a hot mug of coffee, with the vapour rising
It is your smile I see through it;
When I stare vacantly at nothing
And smile without knowing why
All I know is somewhere in my mind, your thoughts are knocking
When I remember the only memory I have left of you
Of you uttering your last farewell and walking away
And my arms feel forever bereft that I didn’t take the chance to hug you
At least hug you a goodbye…

    Poignant tale.
    Hope her fairy tale has a happy beginning & end when he comes back.
    Coz if he really loves her, he should be back soon πŸ™‚

    P.S- I love the new look of your Blog, Sreesha.
