Am I missing you?
Yes, I am, about as much as did the ocean a drop of water that got splashed ashore,
The desert a grain of sand that got blown away
And the universe a meteorite that disintegrated upon entering Earth's atmosphere.
Does it hurt?
Yes, it does, about as much as did a splinter the hoof of a buffalo,
A hook the skin of a crocodile
And a thorn the armor of a rhino.
So, all's well then?
Well, I did admit to missing you, didn't I?
