I Miss You

I miss you!
When I open my eyes in the morning,
But I can’t find a morning wish from you;
And I wish I had woken up from my phone ringing.

I miss you!
When a cool breeze through the window caresses my face,
But I can’t feel your hair, tantalizing my senses;
And I wish I were standing there in your embrace.

I miss you!
When I’m walking down the street,
But I can’t hold your hand in affection;
And I wish you were standing at the next turn to meet.

I miss you!
When I’m watching a romantic flick,
But I can’t put my arm around you;
And I wish you were teasing me as I tried to cover my tears really quick.

I miss you!
When it is raining,
But I can’t pull you to get you drenched;
And I wish I were laughing as I heard you complaining.

I miss you!
When I’m breathing,
But I can’t feel yours against my face;
And I wish I could feel your lips kissing and teasing.

I don’t miss you!
When I’m dreaming,
As I find you in my arms,
Holding me always and never letting me go;
But I’m afraid to wake up,
And I wish I could just sleep forever as it would be far more pleasing.


They say, “You don’t know what you’ve got, until it’s gone.” It’s human nature; we often fail to cherish a thing until we lose it. You’re lucky if you can mend things, but most of the times the loss is indefinite and permanent. So, the only thought I would like to put forth is that one should admire and respect everything they have in their life – their family, their loved ones, their talent, their friends and anything that is not materialistic because nothing lasts forever!

Anmol Rawat is a writer, which, considering where you are reading this, makes perfect sense. His debut solo book ‘ABCs of Horror’ is a collection of 26 terrifying standalone tales. He thinks Game of Thrones and Supernatural are the best TV series ever made and devours on Nicholas Sparks, Dan Brown, Stephen King & John Green. He would kill for a good cup of Cappuccino, as should all right thinking people.
