I Miss You Poem by David Whalen


I miss you…
but not the you
that you are now

I miss the you that I used to know
Not the you that’s
Changed somehow

I miss the one,
with the smile
bright as the sun

I miss the you
that could make me feel
As if I were the only one

I miss your leg tight against mine
in the front seat
of my ol' Chevy

I miss the you that I could take to
lonely country roads
down by the levee

The one that I couldn’t
Get out of my car, tho’ I didn’t
Really try too hard anyhow

I miss you…really, really
Miss you…just not the you
That you are now
