A Lesson From Missing You

by D. Sager (writer), In the wind, November 21, 2011

You are only a chapter in the book of my life

With each breath I'm missing you, breathing in a rasping dry breath.

It seems to burn down to the hollow of my soul.

Memories they flood, now mixing up. I thought I missed only you,

but I miss many.

I find that many are a part of me now. It is not just you,

there are many.

Each having a part to play, each having a part in me,

each deserving of my attention.

What shall I do with this feeling? I should not,

long after only you.

I should, enjoy the many that have become

a part in my life.

How can I miss only you and perhaps leave out another

who has a part to play?

I must move on, pay my respects, but in the end,

know you are only a part.

There yet remains a whole to be built from my life,

a whole song, a whole book,

not just a verse, or a chapter.

So then, I will breath this painful breathe that it may give me

a lesson from missing you.
