Checking On You

by Annie   Oct 18, 2004

I took a break the other day
To say hello to you.
We hadn't spoken much in a while,
Except a word or two.

I told you about school,
And all that's happening.
I talked about my family life,
And how I like to sing.

I shared with you my thoughts about
The way that I've been treated.
I felt as though you understood,
And I didn't feel as cheated.

The time I find to talk to you
Has grown scarce, I dare to say.
But never assume you're not on my mind,
Because I think about you night and day.

Really all I wanted to say was
My feelings are still true,
You're loved and someday we'll meet again,
But right now I'm just checking on you.

**In loving memory of Joshua John Dams, who committed suicide on April 12, 2004. We miss you, Josh.
