This beautiful poem by Michelle Cook tugged at my heart so deeply that I wanted to share it with all of you.
I love poems that take me back to a certain person, and How Are You gives me the feeling she’s right here with me.
There are days when you are close,
but mostly days when you are far.
And sometimes, even the stars
seem to wonder where you are.
This pushing and pulling
due to some odd gravitational force
always leaves me to wonder
if you’ve just gotten off course.
And my soul is forever searching,
looking for a definitive sign,
to show me you’re alright,
in the midst of this decline.
I’m always aching to understand
and know for certain you’re okay,
but it’s difficult to know sometimes
when you’re so far away.
