I miss you, though I'm not
quite sure I love you.
All I know is I like my music sad.
Long, empty days I'm pensive, thinking of you,
And while you're gone, I'm never really glad.
I think of love as some enormous sea,
Tempestuous or still, but never ending,
Something that once there will always be.
But that is not the message that I'm sending.
Missing you, for me, is something new:
An opening into my changing heart.
Love is something that I won't yet do,
But my feeling for you is a start.
Love, like prayer, should not be lightly said,
So I'll just say, "You're in my heart"
