I Don't Miss You

I don't miss you.
Nope, I don't miss you at all.
The way we used to have those long chats . . .
And laugh all day at the jokes we'd send
The way I just knew I'd have a message from you every day.
I don't miss any of that. But my computer . . .
My computer really misses hearing from yours.

Just kidding--I miss you like crazy!
Email me!


H ow are you
E verything all right?
L ike to hear from you
L ove to see you soon
O bviously I miss you

Missing You

Today I was reminded of you
taken back to a special place in time
and as I thought of you
a certain sort of sadness filled my heart.

Even though the memories
we have are beautiful
and thinking back on them
fills my heart with joy;
my eyes also swell with tears
because we are so far apart
and I miss you so very much.

The Voice of Silence


Listen to the wind when I'm not there to be with you,
for as it dries your tears away it will tell you of my love!
As you walk in the fields when I'm not there to walk with you,
listen to the lark as it sings of my love for you!
When late at night, and I'm not there to hold you,
dream of tomorrow, and you will find me there!

Saying Goodbye

(from "The Muppets Take Manhattan")

Saying goodbye, going away
Seems like goodbye's such a hard thing to say
Touching our hands, wondering why
It's time for saying goodbye.

Saying goodbye, why is it sad?
Makes us remember the good times we've had
Much more to say, foolish to try
It's time for saying goodbye.

Don't want to leave, but we both know
Sometimes its better to go
Somehow I know, we'll meet again
Not sure quite where and I don't know just when

You're in my heart, so until then
It's time for saying goodbye.
