Is Something Missing?

(c) Google Images


To the world she seemed okay;

Got her head screwed on right;

Had her heart in the right place;

Got her life figured out;

But deep inside she knew;

Something was missing;

Everyone said they look good together;

It must be a match made in heaven;

He finishes her sentences;

She laughs at his jokes;

They seemed perfect for each other;

But somehow they both knew;

Something was missing;


Car key, check;

Phone, check;

File, check;

Hankie, check;

Wallet, check;

Everything he could think of was on him;

But he still felt something was missing;


We all reach that point;

Where every step we take;

Calls for more question marks than periods;

Where everything checks out;

But still feel vacuums waiting to be filled;

Urging us to pay attention;


Sometimes our intuitions are right;

Other times it’s just our minds playing games on us;

Might sound like a gentle ticking reminder;

Or a pressing urge in our subconscious;

We get to remember what might have escaped us;

Or find what we suspect to be missing;


But we’ll keep on living;

Even when we find pieces;

Of our puzzle missing;

Knowing that we’ll find them;

Someway somehow;


That’s why I commit each day I get to see;

Into the hands of the only one God who created me;

To remind me of what I may have forgotten;

And help me forget what I don’t need to remember;

No matter how imperfect my life is;

It’s only in Him that I find myself complete;

With all my missing pieces held together;


Ever felt something was missing with you?

What fills up the missing places in your life?
