For mon chéri Sherry.


I'm independent.
Don't need anybody, I'm OK on my own.
A solo engagement, living is easy when you're living alone.
But as much as I know I can make it as one,
I'm starting to think maybe two is more fun.
As I walk through this world I'm enjoying the view,
But the world is much nicer when I share it with you.

I miss you so much.
Your kiss and your touch, everything that you do.
I miss you so much.
I miss you so much I don't know what to do.

You gave me a picture.
Us in the orchard, my arms around you.
I thought it would help some, but it only reminds me that I'm missing you.
So I fix myself dinner and talk to the walls,
Put the clothes in the dryer, feed the cat, make some calls.
Trying to keep my mind on the things that I do,
But I'm losing my focus; my mind is on you.

Summer to autumn.
Autumn to winter and winter to spring.
Then back to summer. Who could imagine the changes they bring?
Do the flowers miss sunshine? The birds wait for spring?
(I imagine they cherish what each moment brings.)
Though there's only one moment in time and in space,
I'm counting the hours 'til we're in the same place.
