Truth Series; I Miss You


I miss you 

I miss us 

I miss the oh so sweet communion 

We shared 

I miss the giggles and tears 

The rebuke and correction 


You were there all the time 

My rock, my defense attorney 

My lover, my best friend 

You were… 

Because now I don’t feel  

You are. 


I’ve wandered 

I’ve gone around in circles 

Still nothing. 

I tried shoving in some other thing 

Into this huge vacuum in my heart 

But it hasn’t felt any emptier  


Where are you? 

I miss you. 

I miss us. 

I miss the peace of knowing you hear my tiny thoughts 

And seeing your mighty miracles 

I miss the oh so sweet fellowship 


Where did I lose you? 

I’ve wandered so long, 

I’m lost. 

I need you more than I need air 

What life do I have to live if I have air and not you? 

Lo, you are the air I breathe! 


I crave our closeness more than anything 

I want you back… 

I’m sorry I left you in the first place. 

Please Lord…fill me up with your oh so sweet love 

I miss you. 

I miss us.

As the deer pants for the water brooks,
So pants my soul for You, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When shall I come and appear before God?
My tears have been my food day and night,
While they continually say to me,
“Where is your God?”

– Psalms 42:1-3

  1. Awwwww. This is beautiful. At first I thought it was written for a person… Then after a stanza, I realised it was for the Lord.
    It goes to say… We should not allow any human take God’s place in our hearts.
    A truth just hit me… That’s why God allows some breakups… Because we have allowed the person become an idol in a place only meant for Him.
    So help us Lord.
    Thank you dear for allowing the Lord use you to write this poem 🙂


      1. You are very welcome. I just thought it was important that people know they can feel “distant” from God at times…I know I have.
