Miss You

How can you miss

Someone you don't know?

How can you cry

Over a death you

Don't remember?

How can you feel

Someone watching

If you've never

Been watched?

Somehow it's possible

Because I'm lying here

Crying myself to sleep

Over a man I've never known

I feel his pressence everywhere

I go even though he's not there

When I see my friends take

The time they get with their

Grandparents for granted

I want to cry

They don't know how lucky

They are to have

Two grandmothers

And two grandfathers

I miss a man I barely met

He died when I was still a baby

Yet he's helped me make

Some of the most important

Choices in my life
