Missing

I hear a shout,

It’s loud and strong,

My hands reach out,

Expectant,

It’s a matter of timing.

 

I hear a shout,

It’s excited and warm,

My heart reaches out,

Hopeful,

It’s a matter of timing.

 

I hear a shout,

It’s shrill and fearful,

My body tense and low,

Aware,

It’s a matter of timing.

 

I hear a shout,

It’s full and roars,

Anticipation,

Knowing,

It’s a matter of timing.

 

I hear a shout,

It’s desperate and sorrowful,

Regretful,

Loss,

The things I’ll miss.
