Someone's Missing
by Richard J. Budig 1995

Someone's missing
from this gathering.
I'm not sure who
because there are
so many people here...
little ones 'n' mom's and dad's.
'n' Cats n dogs from everywhere,
so, it's hard to tell,
but my heart is empty
In a quiet little corner
reserved Just for them.
It's the feeling I get
when someone
I care about
leaves the room.
It's that quiet, soft
little voice
that tells me
someone is missing
from my heart.

How I can relate to this Richard...there is a little empty corner in my own heart today.
I hope yours fills up...a happy holiday to you

My sentiments too. A few empty chairs. Thank you for this lovely, touching piece.
