A deep emotional state of melancholic longing for a person or thing that is absent.

Artist: Pavel Chistyakov

It was the first

You were walking slowly, silently through the snow

Smiling at the fresh canvas beneath you

It decorated your yard beautifully

I watched each delicate step you took

Admiring your youthful aura

Like a child's first winter

I saw you smiling again today

This time you smiled at me

You waved to me

A friendly gesture

It was nothing special

But it made me feel warm

I saw you again yesterday

Staring up at the naked trees

This time you weren't smiling though

You almost looked sad for them

As if their missing leaves were your own

I looked out of my window this morning

Saw you standing at my door

But you never knocked

What did you want?

It's been a month since I saw you

I still don't know your name

But I miss you

I look for you everyday

Please come back

Smile for me one more time.
