Missing You

By: John E Firhill

Missing, longing, waiting, yearning
Waves of passion gushing, churning
Minutes, hours, daylight burning
Unforseen emotions stirring

Moments fleeting, memories flashing
pain increasing, never ceasing
Skin a'tingling, fear of failing
Heart with anguish now is ailing

Hungering, thirsting for your touching
Lacking closeness, pillow clutching
Soul on fire, dawn encroaching
Tomorrow's coming, relief approaching!
