Seeking Peace

Fallen Eyelashes

Every morning

I miss you next to me

Every night

You course through my mind

Upon lonely evenings

I see your eyes

When the Moon rises

And I always look for you

In big crowds

And when I hear laughter

I look for your lips

Telling the jokes

And some nights

I wish you were here

And some days

I wish you were mine again

And I always catch the clock

At 11:11

And I find dandelions

And I make wishes

On fallen eyelashes

For you

But everyday

I seek peace

For me
