I See You Everyday
I saw you at the park today.
You were playing ball with a happy chocolate lab.
She reminded me of our ole shepherd, Mattie.
The setting sun was warm on my face as I closed my eyes, smiling.
I listened to the birds singing and the children laughing.
The light scent of spruce and lilac drifted on the evening breeze.
I thought of happy times together. I miss you.
I saw you at our favorite restaurant last week.
You were with another man and two beautiful ladies, three tables over.
I was sitting with my husband and our sons, celebrating our 6 year anniversary.
You and my husband are alike; you have a lot in common.
Dan has grown so much since the last time you saw him.
And you never got to meet Collin or my husband, Mike.
I know that you would love them and they would love you back.
It’s been almost 20 years now, since you left this world.
But I still see you everywhere. I see you every day.
