I Miss You
I walked past your flat today and almost knocked on the door.
I thought I heard your voice and hoped to turn to see your face.
I almost called you on the phone,
then remembered you would not pick up at all.
I went to the old bridge by the river
and sat down alone in the sun.
A feeling of sorrow washed over me
and knowing that we would never play in the river again
made the sorrow stick.
How I miss you and all we did.
How I long for your jokes
and how you'd pick on me.
You showed me how to juggle.
To stand that little bit longer,
to wait and...
I should find a way to say thank you
For all that you have done.
You went out of your way to make me stand
without needing to know why I fell down.
You helped me be all that I can
without asking anything I could not answer.
I could not have come this far without you.
I should give you a hug
