Some days, it catches you breathless.
The longing to know them now.
The desire to share your life today with them.
The wish to be able to just sit down at the coffee shop together and chat…
There’s so much going on right now
So much good
So much growth
That I wish I could share
I wish we could look across a table at one another
And I could hear him say how proud he is of me.
I wish I could hear him tell me
That he knew it all along
He knew I’d get to where I’m going
Or where I am right now.
I don’t even wish for the life we didn’t get to have
So much as I just wish for coffee
And an hour to smile at each other and tell of our separate journeys
Like old friends.
