I think of you

Only when


Children run by me on the sidewalk

playing hopscotch or

hide and go seek

 

Only when


Rainy days send me inside

seeking refuge with large books

several cups of coffee and

an ice cold couch

 

Only when

 

Sweltering summer days melt into heavy evenings,
the stereo plays no music and
the windowsill is absent you

 

Other than this,
I hardly think of you
at all
