Been Too Long - Poem by bob barci

Haven't seen
or heard from you
in quite some time.
Just where have you been hanging out?
Just what have you been doing?
I've missed your smile.
I've missed your being.
Let's go out to dinner
so you can take half of it home.
Tell me about Nemmi.
Does he miss me?
How's Ma and Pa?
When you see them,
breathe for me.
How's your friend the complainer?
Is he still tired?
I need to know.
It's been so long
and I don't want to forget.
Memories of you are nice,
but it's so much better
having you here,
holding you.
So, come on home
and spend some time with me.
It's been too long
and I miss you.

dedicated to Shelley Masters
