I miss you  

And not the way someone misses someone who’s dead  

I miss you because you’re still alive,  

But I grieve the space you left instead  


To someone I regarded as kin 

To someone with whom everything was shared: 


Clothes and bras  

Stories, memories  

And everything else I’ve spared  



I look back to the girl I was and the woman I am to be  

I look back at the girl you were 

I see parts of her in me.  


Memories drift by of places  

That you and I used to seek  

Your shadow still remains 

She stays inside me  


I often think if God allowed me to rewrite 

 the stars  

Would I trace that divine pen to where  

Our paths 

Would align, 

At All? 


I wish I could say no. 

But every time I hesitate,  

I say yes.  


Even though our paths don’t align now 

I wish you always the best. 

I hope you drink your water, 

That your bad days get better, 

I hope all your scars will soon be healed 

For the good and the better  


I know our paths don’t cross anymore. 

The divergence in a path that we thought was concrete 

My love for you still remains. 


To J and To B.
