“I Miss You”
I Miss you,
I Miss the loud music coming from your room.
I Miss the warmth of knowing you’re just a call away.
I Miss seeing your big bright smile.
I Miss seeing you here and there.
I Miss getting kicked out of your room.
I Miss cooking you breakfast, lunch and dinner.
I Miss hearing you come in at night.
I Miss your smell.
I Miss you with all my might.
I Miss the way we would fight.
I Miss my brother,
I Miss my son,
I Miss my friend,
I Miss you, I Love you.
And we will see you soon again,
We Love & Miss you.
If I had just one wish,
it would be for a stairway
that reached up to
Heaven so I
