AUTHOR'S NOTE:
This was written summer '04 (the summer before my freshman year of highschool). It was dedicated to someone very special to me. We were together for a while, but broke up not long after this was written. However, we are still very good friends and talk quite often. d:) Please enjoy.

MISSING YOU

Missing you isn't what hurts,
It's knowing that I once had you in my arms
That causes the most pain.
But still, thoughts of you
And knowing that we'll be together again soon
Brings light to my days of rain.

Missing you isn't what hurts,
It's the fact that I can't see you for now,
And knowing how much you miss me too.
Until the day I once again feel your warm embrace,
And again see your loving face,
I'll always wait for you.

Missing you isn't what hurts,
It's those dreams late at night,
That have me grasping the empty air,
Forever looking for your hand,
Though it's never there.

Missing you isn't what hurts,
It's the fact that you're gone
And feeling like half my heart is M.I.A.
But I know that things
Won't stay this way.

Missing you isn't what hurts,
It's our beautiful memories,
Forever in my heart.
But they also bring me joy,
Because thinking of them tells me
That we'll never be apart.

Missing you isn't what hurts,
It's knowing that everyone around us
Is against us being together.
But a cure for that is knowing that we're proving them wrong so far,
And thinking that we'll stay this way forever.

Missing you isn't what hurts,
It's knowing that people everywhere are doubting,
Saying that I should put you in my past.
But I'll never listen, because when I'm with you,
I feel it in my heart that we will last.

Missing you isn't what hurts,
It's the fact that no one believes we can stay this way,
Except a select few.
But even they would never understand how it feels to be
Me and you.

Missing you isn't what hurts,
Just wanting you, your hugs,
Your love, your touch.
My heart just aches for you
Too much.

Missing you isn't what hurts,
Just waiting for one more kiss,
I didn't think it would hurt
Quite like this.

Missing you isn't what hurts..
Well…
Maybe it is.
