I jump at every little sound

Thinking it's you.

My heart speeds up when a shadow moves

Thinking it's you.

My phone vibrates, I leap to it

Thinking it's you.

The flash of eargerness, hope, joy

That comes when I think I hear your voice

Think I see you walking across the damp grass to my window

Is replaced with longing

When I find my senses decived me

And you are miles away.

Instead of here

Holding me

Kissing me

Making your cute little jokes

But you are miles away

Only three,

but it feels much farther.

When we are not together.

But I must wait

Wait for you to hold me again

Kiss me again

Hear your jokes again.

Wait until I can run to you

Fly like a bird set free from a cage

Into your arms

Safe and happy
