“Did you miss me?”
I ask her as I’m crawling into our bed
Smoothing the curls on top of our head
Giving her a bright toothy smile when I know her heart feels like a block full of lead
For a couple of years now I’ve been gone
I know my sudden departure was wrong
And no doubt she resents me for leaving, I know the road to forgiveness is long
But I love those brown eyes staring back in the mirror
I know the typical stranger would see her anger and fear her
But after leaving for a couple years, I think I know her better, I think I see her clearer
