Napkin Love

Missing you is a miserable job

In a crowd of many

It’s like my soul is gone.

I have no Idea

If it’s love or habit

But being by your side

Is a comfort like never.

No it’s not the gifts

Nor the chores you do.

No word is spoken

But thousands are understood.

The air is light

Fresh and bright

Even when you just sit on the couch.

No touch is made

But the glances sooth.

Now my chest is heavy

And air so dense.

It’s been only a few hours

But a day is too long

To not have you

In the same room

Even when you are always

Residing in my heart.

I don’t know if it’s love or habit

But let the longings last

For life, till it ends.

I am glad I could find a pen in my bag to scribble the rapidly flowing words from my mind on the paper napkin; as I tried to keep my little guy sane with my phone as he waited for food. My phone is my notepad but today I had to get back to an old habit of scribbling on paper napkins…and I loved it!

An author, Doctor and a mother who struggles with learning mothering her preschooler, as he learns to be a child. In all a person exploring life, it's beauty and meaning as I try to keep my nose above water to survive challenging times and enjoy beautiful moments. I love to write about everything and anything, especially about feelings; your's, mine and anyone's. I recently published my first fiction and to me it's an achievement to be able to write with an insistent and clingy toddler screaming in my head for attention as I write and stare at my screen with sleep deprived eyes in those dark nights; with the melody of snores and music of perseverance ringing loud and making me keep going.
