At times like these...

At times like these,
When I am hard at work,
I think of how my heart skips a beat when I get a call from you.
How my cheeks go pink and lips curl,
As if I was asked out for a date for the very first time,
I feel those jitters as I hear your lilting voice,
And I know I miss you.

At times like these,
When I walk past a merry couple,
I think of how our fingers intertwine as we saunter together.
Laughing at each other, talking about everything and nothing in particular,
Eyes dancing in delight,
A sense of having the world at our feet,
And I know I miss you.

At times like these,
When I have nothing to do,
I think of how your thoughts and memories engulf me.
Left with unsuppressed tears and irrepressible grins,
My heart yearns to be with you,
To feel those moments again,
And I know I miss you.

At times like these,
When I lie alone in bed,
I think of how it would feel to have your arms around me.
A sigh escapes my lips,
The feeling of helpless desolation mounts over me,
All I do seems incomplete,
And I know I miss you.

At times like these,
When I mull over tomorrow,
I think of how things will be and how life would turn out.
Unsure about everything else, except you,
Knowing that everything is transient and unpredictable,
But you shall stay by my side forever,
And I know I miss you.

At times like these,
When I imagine you,
I think about how I have so much faith in you.
What attracts me to you is no mystery,
Yet I can’t see how I have grown so attached to you,
To actually consider my life with you.
And I know I love you…

At times like these,
I know I love you.

And I feel this way about you all the time…
