My dear friend.
My man.

I sure as hell have missed you.
When shit got rough.
When Aru woke up at 5:20am.
When I got home from dance and there was no dinner.

I sure as hell missed you.
When the bed was empty and your skin wasn’t there.
When the sun came out on the porch.
And you know how you do that leaning thing and it’s annoying?
Yeah, there was that moment when I just wanted you to lean against.

Of course, I didn’t miss you when I got that parking ticket.
But that moment aside.
Honey, I have missed you.

This home is yours as it is mine.
And whilst I can manage.
I can get by.
I can do it without you.

I simply don’t want you.
Welcome home.
