Missing a Friend
O how I miss you, old friend -
Like the leaf misses its branch,
Like the sand misses the sea,
Like the sky misses the rainbow,
Like sadness misses salt tears.
When I see you in fleeting moments -
I am a tree finding its roots,
I am a cloud finding its storm,
I am a drop finding its ocean,
I am a smile finding its bliss.
And when I leave you all over again -
A flower wilts and dies alone,
A glass shatters against the floor,
Emptiness fills up my soul,
A sun sets over an arctic desert.
