I Miss You On Your Birthday

Nicholas Gordon

I miss you on your birthday,
Not only for your smile,
But for the piece of me that's gone,
Left within your care.

I'm in an empty hallway
And have been for awhile,
Gazing inwardly towards home,
Neither here nor there.

How quickly we've turned distant!
The months pass by like years.
How could friends so inseparable
So soon seem so apart!

How imprecise the instant
Held hostage by my tears!
Though Time may seem insatiable,
I have you in my heart.

Between 12/2009 and 01/2010 on Cordula Philipps.
