I think I'm okay, but I'm really not.
Most of the time, or maybe it's some of the time
I'm fine but I do have my moments…
Like when I feel frustrated, or discouraged,
Or restless for no apparent reason…
Or when I forget what I am going to
The store to buy…
Or when I make plans with friends
To go out but suddenly feel that
I'd rather stay home…
Or when I'm making a meal or
Doing the dishes and I stop and glance
Out the kitchen window and all at once
My mind is drifting other places…
Or when I'm in my car sitting at a red light
But my mind is not, and the person in the car
Behind me beeps at me because the light is
Now green and I'm still sitting stationary…
Or when I look at the clock
Even though I am perfectly aware
Of what time it is, but still take the
Opportunity to calculate what time it is
Where you're at and ponder what you're
Probably doing at that very minute…
It is at those moments, those most peculiar,
Most unsettling moments
That you are so with me
Even when you're not with me.

|A nice tribute to that special someone in your life. I'd take out the "All rights reserved" at the end, or move it next to the copyright information, because it almost looks like a part of the poem, like a final punctuating line. It could be, in a humorous way, as in you reserving your rights to this person, but somehow, I don't think that's what you meant. :-)|
