Another Piece of Me


I was back to normal
for an evening
but now there's another piece of me
that has gone MIA

There's traces of him
here and there
wrappers, magazines,
a rogue Nerf dart

I wonder if he has
any idea of how much
I miss him
or love him?


Today I felt like an amputee
missing an arm
after just having my leg
reattached on Saturday


He's likely been gunned down
in a paintball firestorm
and has a tale to tell
of the shot he took in the neck

I miss him breaking into song
while camped out on the laptop
or riling the dog
right before bedtime

In two days he'll return
from Jesus camp
and the peace I have will be
replaced by the piece I'm missing.
