you are missing from me

Whenever I see the full moon, I miss you
When I see the frost glimmering in the morning light, I miss you
As we work to make our new house our home, I miss you
As I "try" to hang a shelf up in Charlie's bedroom, I miss you
When I think of crafts I want to make with wood and birch bark, I miss you
As I make your famous salsa recipe, I miss you
As I watch the aspen leaves fall from the trees this fall, I miss you
When I drink my morning coffee in your trout mug, I miss you
When I see heart clouds in the sky, I miss you
When I look in Charlie's eyes and wish he could have known you, I miss you
(…and that was just the past few days).
All the time, I miss you
Happy Birthday Dad!
