I look for you… (Poem)

I look for you in the places I go, in things I do, in the lines I wrote.

I look for you in the plans I make, in the names I hear, in the breaths I take.

I look for you in the paintings I make, in the faces I draw, in the games I play.

I look for you when I am mad, when I am sad, in good & bad.

I look for you when I stare at the stars & no one holds my hand in the dark.

I look for you when I wake up everyday & when I get lost walking on the way.

I look for you on long drives, on busy streets, in late nights.

I look for you when life’s a mess, I think of you & take a guess.

I have counted all these years…missed so much, I burst into tears.

I look for you when I wipe my tears & no one knows about what I fear.

My heart tells me you’ll be here one day. To listen, to love, to spoil, to care.

I look for you when no one’s around, but you are still waiting to be found.

You aren’t here but my hope’s alive. I hope you’ll catch me before I fly.
