I was missing you

I was missing you as I walked upon the fallen leaves, beside a gently flowing stream, smelling autumn in the air.
I was missing you late one winter night as I danced amidst the falling snow, and listened to the silence.
I was missing you as I jumped in puddles and looked for crocus and daffodils as spring made its presence known in falling rain, and budding trees.
I was missing you on a summer night, as I swam in a dark pool by the light of a full moon.
I didn’t know what was missing.
I didn’t know it was you.
But when you came, laughing, touching, sharing yourself,
Filling every part of my life, my thoughts, my heart,
I realized that all this time –
I was missing you.
