Drifting

I would like to be drunk enough to text you

I would like to be sober enough to remember to text you

I would like to see you actually

I would also like for you to see me...

Maybe for our eyes to meet

Maybe for our feet to walk 

Maybe for our minds to drift

Maybe for our hands to touch

Maybe for our...

Never mind

You are not here

You are gone

You left

I would like to be drunk enough to forget you

However

I would love to be sober enough to remember you..

You and your laugh

You and your smile

You and your lips

You and your...

Never mind

You are gone

You left

I would like to be drunk enough fall on the ground laughing, loving, and being me even if it is without you. Drunk on life, work, curiosity, people, nature, emotions and being alone yet not being lonely.

However

I would love to be sober enough to fall for you laughing, loving, and being me with you always and forever. Sober on life, kids, family, friends, love, pain, healing, dependence and loving you until tomorrow's end.

For now, I will drink the wine and smoke to the sky.

In the back of my mind and of my heart, even when my head is spinning and the walls will not stand still

You will be there

A little part of me will always remember the words you said about two and a half weeks before you left

"I will always come back for you."

And I will always have a place here for you. If you heart ever drifts remembering me and decides it would like to come home..

You have a home here. With me. 

 

I hope you are happy now.. wherever you are.
