I Miss You--By Annie Jenkin--England

I Miss You

It's as Spring makes its new start - I miss you
The yellow of Daffodils and Primroses
Budding trees, heathers and bushes
And the morning sun now blushes
It's then I feel alive, to share such promise of hope and joy.

On warm Summer evenings - I miss you
Drowsy bees pollen searching
The Ox-eyed daisies slowly closing
Sat alone, I sip cool wine, thinking
It's then I'm happy, to enjoy life's gifts and pleasure.

When Autumn silently creep's in - I miss you
Raindrops are illuminated by street light
Footsteps of strangers echo in the night
I hear the sea inside its shroud of mist
It's then I miss, your eyes glowing with love for me.

On long dark evenings of Winter - I miss you
When the house is buffeted by wind
The highs of Christmas now dimmed
An absorbing book comes to an end
It's then I miss, making memories to treasure.
