I Miss You

In dark and lonely spaces, I miss your innocence.

When somberness wraps around, I miss your merriment.

If only responsibility could be replaced with uninhibited fun.

Maybe I wouldn’t miss you so much, the child that I once was.

The wrinkles and gray hairs multiply each day; Reflected in my image–I’m afraid they’re here to stay.

Sometimes I see you in passing, in glimpses of days long gone.

How I wish I had embraced you and enjoyed the childhood song.

I watch you in the shadows, longing to be free.

Come out from what is acceptable, and dance and play with me.
