Soon I will see you.
Sneaking soft kisses behind your mother’s back.
Soon I will hold you.
Squeezing your hand closer to mine.
Soon I will taste you.
Savoring the flavor of your lips on mine.
Soon I will hear your voice.
Stumbling over the words I’ve practiced hundreds of times.
Soon I will memorize you.
Studying the way your lips move when you speak three words.
