On Missing You

Home.  It feels more like the Christmas season than last year, even though we don't have snow.  I love wandering around our town, buying Christmas presents, seeing lights.  I just baked cookies, and finished reading the seventh Harry Potter whilst listening to Christmas music.  It was a beautiful moment in my life.

But I miss lots of things.

I miss my boyfriend.
I miss my roommate.
I miss my two great friends who live down the hall.
I miss my sister.

I miss watching Friends instead of studying.
I miss listening to good music and watching people walk by outside the window.
I miss the bustle of bodies walking up and down the hallway, even when fifth was unceremoniously noisy.

I miss Chapel and group and my job (a little surprisingly).
I miss Dr. Neinhuis's lectures and Dr. Long's slide shows.
I miss throwing my keys out the window.
I miss wearing onesies with friends.

I miss you.  A lot.

Come home soon.


  1. I miss your smile,
    I miss your beautiful face,
    I miss holding your hand,
    I miss dancing.....

  2. This poem made me so happy. And Ben's comment (forgive me for creeping) made me just about cry. I miss you love.
