what i missed

what i missed was not knowing who
you would be,
but i knew you were a
part of me.
what  i missed
was your wonder,
the world that you learned,
living and feeling each
slight toss or turn.
i missed being a shoulder
to lean on, to cry,
when things got
confusing as the world
tumbled by.
what i missed were
your victories,
be they large
or small.
what i missed was the joy
of loving them all.
so the empty walks with me,
though quieter, now.
what i missed was a
and would never be now.
i will not miss today
or the search for the light.
i feel when he holds me,

tells me

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
