I Miss You Everyday

I am half a world away, and

I miss you, miss you every day,

     so I’m planning how to find my way back home.


I am going to build a secret door

that opens a portal from my house to yours,

     and we can visit back and forth in an instant.


Or, a roller coaster ride

from your couch to mine, and side by side

     we can zoom together anytime we wish, in a swish!


If I could fly faster than a jet

I’d be at your house for dinner, and I’d set

     the table with an extra place for me.  Surprise!


From my dark jungle I could climb a vine,

swing around the world, and never find

     a friend as wonderful as you.

I wish I had a set of springs

to bounce away from dark, scary things

     and land right into your arms.

But, we’re oceans apart, and from my shore,

I cannot hear your voice for the roar

     of waves high and deep.


So, I will build rocket water skis

to cut across these seven seas

     and coast safely into your harbor.


Because I miss you, miss you every day,

And in my heart you will stay.

No distance, high or deep,

No fears or foes can keep me from you!

Because I love you, and I will tell you so every day.
