A Good Day?

Today is one of those days when I don't feel the pain of not having you near quite as acutely.

I don't miss your smile as much or wish for your hand to hold in such a way that I can feel you even though you aren't here and haven't been for years.

I don't hear you laugh in the other room at untold jokes.

I don't turn to you and ask you to get things that you aren't there to get.

I can't smell you or taste you just with a thought.

I don't snuggle back against your ghost.

In fact, I don't think of you at all.

Except to notice that I didn't think of you

... and to wonder...

... was this a good day?
