I woke up and opened my eyes to the morning,
And I thought about how you must already be headed to work.
I was listening to the radio today and a song came on we have never heard together,
But I thought of you when I heard it because it sounded like something you’d like.
I was eating lunch and enjoying the tastes and textures of food we have never shared,
And I thought about having lunch with you sometime.
I was digging on my desk trying to find something amidst the mess,
And I thought about your desk and how you told me it was covered with work.
I was driving home on the bridge over the frozen river,
And I thought about how much you love both snow and the water.
I drove past your house like I do every day on my way in and out of town,
And I hoped you didn’t have to work late.
I went to the store to pick up a few things,
And I thought about the last time we shopped together searching for Hawaiian bread.
I curled up in my blankets, ready to sleep,
And I thought about you curled up in your fleece sheets.
I wrote a little poem about how everything makes me think of you,
And I wondered what you would think if you ever saw it.
