I want to be more present with you.

I want to appreciate your smile more.

When I am lost in thought

or staring at my phone,

I look up to see you

grinning and being playful.

I want to accept that invitation

more often.


I lose hours

trying to create something

but lose sight of the fact

I’m creating it for us.


Days and weeks pass by.

I want to remember my time with you.

I want to remember your words.

If you ever go,

I know I will treasure

every scrap of you I can find.


I’m often in my head,

worrying about the future,

reliving the past.


I’m always somewhere else.

But I’d rather be with you.
