tom’s poem

I love you
I miss you
Sometimes I just want to see you.

I realize that only a few hours ago we were
both asleep in our bed, clinic and I can still feel
the little kisses that you gave me as I was
half asleep murmuring to myself listening to the radio.

I still miss you.
Sometimes it hits like a brick.
sometimes it floats on by.
Sometimes I feel it walking behind me.
So I slow down til it catches up.

Your Boyfriend.
