He Didn’t Miss Her

Missing Her

They were to be apart for most of three weeks. She had company, then a conference, then a retreat. He left Tuesday morning.

He wanted Her to know He didn’t miss her….

When He closed the browser and saw Her picture as His wallpaper…

When the phone dinged a text and He saw it wasn’t Her…

When He woke in the early morning to His empty bed…

When He tried to write but only wanted His Muse…

He didn’t miss feeling Her in his arms, Her warmth, Her eyes, Her kiss or the way Her skin felt as He traced Her lines with His finger. He didn’t miss Her sleeping next to Him while He read, His hand on the small of her back. He didn’t miss waking up with Her, sitting across from Her, sharing conversation and coffee.

No, He didn’t miss Her at all.
