Miss You Too!

It’s nice to be missed,

I missed you, too!

But, I just had to,

Take a day off or two.


To travel and rest,

Go anywhere and wander.

A break from my routine,

Makes my heart grow fonder.


As the saying goes,

“All work and no play,”

Makes you grow tired,

Of what you do every day.


But, I have to work,

A roof over my head.

But, sometimes on Sunday,

I get that afternoon dread.


That’s when I know,

Of time off, I’m due,

Step away from the same,

Old things I must do.


But, when I return,

To my schedule at hand,

I feel so refreshed,

Ready for the demand.


Then, I’m glad to be back.

Happy to return.

Until the next time off,

Of which I will yearn.

      Lovely comment, Michael. Thank you. It is just difficult sometimes to pop in and visit here. I am sneaking some time right now, and am glad I did. 🙂

        Sneak away - always lovely when the glasses pop up on the screen.

                I was looking for the red glasses too,
                which means I sorely missed you!
