i have this sinking feeling
in the caverns of my chest
the pain of missing you
as i travel up the coast of the west

i will write you everyday
with all the love i can send
because you are my love
and my very best friend

i must ask you not to start fraying
and drift into thoughts of me
because when i get home, i'll be staying
close and near by your loving heart

when i return we can have our picnic
lay in the grass until hear wind blow
as we laugh about our hearts in our tummy
that sadness will drown away

the second i can see your eyes light up
will be my happiest day to me young life.

so love, i will be leaving, but only physically
and will be returning from what is seemingly eternities
with the smallest vocabulary of my adolescence.
i love you i love you i love you i love you.
