Missing Piece (A Love Poem)

These memories
sustained
by love
wish
hopes
and dreams.
Fruition
will come soon
oh so soon
so hard to wait
to keep within
excitement spilling over.
Sleepless nights
brain so fogged
as I await
needing
desiring
wanting
to be back in your loving arms.
Wearing your shirt
face burrowed in your pillow
still ever so faint
a whiff of you…..
the smell of you
love
hard work
oil
and grease.
Sweet dreams
smile on my face
I fall asleep wrapped in your scent.
Middle of the night
sudden warmth
arms around
I roll over
here you are my love
in reality.
Hold me close
let me embrace you
as I melt
slow sigh
my missing piece arrived home.
November 9/18
