One Thing I Miss

You cannot miss things you don't have if you
Don't know that they exist. Thus, I don't miss
Peace of mind. I've never met a person who
Possesses it, though I have heard of, also seen,
A host of poseurs who've found great success
By saying that they did. I never had gifts for
Sports or arts or entertainment, so it doesn't
Bother me that I don't have them now, but I
Have had you near at times, have felt you fill
Me with delight, and, since you've moved so
Far away, that's one thing I miss.
