Poem for if you are missing your beloved

Dear readers,

I don’t get to see Pamela everyday. Even though we live in close by neighborhoods, our schedules mean we only see each other three to four days of the week, which frustrates both of us. Some people have deal with long distances or are away for days or weeks at a time, as my Dad sometimes had to do.

This is a quick poem that I jotted down for Pamela this morning.


I miss you

I miss you,
Saying goodbye every time kills a little bit of me,
A day feels like a year,
An hour like a week.
Please envelope me into your life,
And I will fold happily inside,
Anything to be with you.


About Nicholas Rogers

I am an English journalist/copywriter living in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and I have been here since 2011. I originally came to work with Casa Alianza, which supports street kids and vulnerable youths. I then stayed on, after meeting Pamela Cruz Lozano, who calls me her adopted Catracho. I work freelance journalism and I have my own translation business. Why did I come here? For the challenge, to open my mind and get out of my comfort zone. I love literature and I've written a book with street kids. I write novels, short stories and poetry, all of which you will find on this blog, as well as a lot of information about Honduras. View all posts by Nicholas Rogers
