I miss:

I miss…

The smile in your eyes

The laughter lines around them

The way you kiss me

The warmth of your hugs

Your closeness when I’m asleep

Silly things you say

That you are away

Half of me is there with you

Come back soon and stay…

I miss: YOU xoxoxo ♥

For my husband Nick, who is in France, taking part in the World Carp Classic 2011, as part of  Team Reels on Wheels. He and his team mates are busy making history as the first completely disabled team of anglers (and their runner) who are all registered disabled! Nick is a wheelchair user, suffering with osteo-arthritis and a crumbling spine; Jim Williams has organo-phosphate (chemical) poisoning – he has oxygen with him; and DaveyP suffers with cluster headaches which incapacitate him at the drop of a hat – a motley crew, indeed!!

So I am a bit distracted, to say the least… and missing him. Luckily, I am having fun with my daughter, Amber, who started blogging again recently and would like to “grow a following”. I find her posts enlightening in many ways!!

I don’t support Thor’s new addiction to creme caramel and her feeding it to him, however… 😉

For Haiku my Heart Friday this week! Please visit and see some wonderful haikus and photographs. Join in if you like to write haiku – it’s a friendly place! 🙂

NB: If anyone is unsure as to the format of a haiku or a senryu, I have just finished reading Leo’s excellent explanation, HERE.

  4. Like minds. I am the one traveling and I miss my wife and family so very very much. This made me feel good because I know they miss me too. Last night, a British couple, traveling the USA and Canada via motorcycle stopped in to attend the motorcycle rally here in Taos, NM. They are on the road and away from friends and family for five months! We talked about this and actually wonder why we separate to attend events. We did agree that the time goes quickly and the loved ones are there waiting, and although we are doing something dear to our own hearts, we miss them and wish they were here.
    Very nice indeed. I hope the time moves quickly, and best of luck with the competition for the brave courageous motely crew!
