I Didn't Say 'I Miss You'

 (after 'the speech';) 

Emily is working tonight, but she just sent me hugs via FB...and then sometimes I just plain miss 'those days' while still being completely happy for her in every way!!

I didn’t say ‘I miss you’
For the sky was lovely blue
like young love gleaming in your eyes
the way young love will do

...and oh, I wouldn’t change it
Those things Time steals away
Yet in the self-same half-breath
How I miss ‘those yesterdays’

p.s. today we looked at an apartment in Toronto for our second daughter who is moving there in the fall to go to school...more 'missing you' pages waiting to be cherished.


  1. Our daughter, son-in-law and grandsons are in Calgary. It's hard to have them so far away. :( I enjoy the phone calls and Skype visits several times a week though. They make me happy and I get to see and hear those dear boys as they grow. Blessings to you and your daughters.

  2. That is such a great shot!
    Feel the pangs too, but I have a feeling there is a lot of good stuff in the next chapter...

  3. that's the great thing about gives new gifts if we look for them.


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
