Every. Single. Day.



Every. Single. Day.
By: Kelli J Gavin
For Writers Unite!


Every single day
Whether it is morning
Or even the dead of night
Each time I hear
The roar of an engine
The swoop of a descent
Or see the lights overhead
I wonder if you are there
Above it all
Are you arriving?
Maybe leaving?
Where are you going?
What brings you back?
Let it be me
Let it be us
Please let it be today
To say I miss you
Would be an understatement
You once were my everything
Every breath
Each smile
The laughter that escaped me
It was all due to you
Amazing you
The one I adore
The one I have always treasured
The one who walked away
When I needed you most
I won't pretend it hurts less
As time passes so slowly
In your absence
Your continual absence just makes me
Know that life is too challenging
I can't do it on my own
I will continue wanting you
Desiring you
Waiting for you
By doing so a shred of hope remains
Hope that should have been dashed
A long time ago
But I will hope
Each day I will spend wanting you
My desire will never fade
I will always wait for you
So today as always
When I see a plane
Whether it is morning
Or even the dead of night
Each time I hear
The roar of an engine
The swoop of a descent
Or see the lights overhead
I wonder if you are there
Above it all
Are you arriving?
Maybe leaving?
Where are you going?
What brings you back?
Let it be me
Let it be us
Please let it be today
