"I gave my three year old daughter some worthless coins, and jokingly told her that she was rich. She went and hid the coins away, and I forgot all about them. Around the same time, my oldest daughter got a bunch of money from her aunts and uncles for her birthday. A few months later, we needed money for food, and I asked my oldest daughter if we could use some of her birthday money. She refused. I almost started crying, because I thought then that I had completely failed as a parent. But suddenly, my youngest daughter appeared, and gave me back the handful of coins that I had given her."

I do not miss you
because the loneliness
has finally made its way
inside of my heart
where you once
stayed.

I do miss you
because our home
is starting to feel
like vacant rooms
without you
to fill them in.

I do not miss you
because my body
is starting to forget
the way your skin
felt against its
most sensitive parts.

I miss you because
everything I once
thought meant so much
to me means nothing
unless you are here
to appreciate it too.
