I Miss You

I Miss You

A Poem by *~*Butterfly Kisses*~*

To the one that got away, that I let slip through my slender fingers. I miss you always.




I hold close the broken pieces of my heart

Locked tightly within a jar of your memory.

My endless thoughts flutter like a billion fireflies,

And hope that someday I might have my wish.


In this bitter silence, my heart yearns

Remembering the opportunities missed.

My pen sways to the music of your voice

And everything you were to me.


The one that got away, that I let slip

Through my slender fingers when I held you

As you said your goodbyes and walked away

Never allowing me to say the words "I love you".


My heart begs for one more chance to speak,

To tell you what I have always needed to say.

May destiny lead us both to brighter times,

For now and until we meet again - I will always miss you.
