A Day Goes By

          A day goes by when I cannot reach you.
          You are off on vacation --
          far out of range --
          the phone has been disconnected,
          and you do not call.

          What do I do?
          Go to the places we went together?
          I listen to the music we have shared
          and have a drink we had together
          only four nights ago.

          You have been gone so long
          my heart aches with longing --
          To be with you again
          To see your face
          And touch your smile with mine.
