Catching Up

Hello, Spirit. I've missed you!
It's been too long since we sat down together,
just to be and to share and to renew one another.
We've played phone tag over the weeks, but
it's not a substitute for face-to-face time like this.
Do you have a moment to hear my strains?
Perhaps as conversation unfolds,
you can prod me into a laugh and encourage me
with gentle reminders that you have blessed me
with many gifts, much love, and a full life.
Then when our coffee cups are empty
and we leave this moment,
will you call me again soon?
I've been missing our connection
and our daily conversations.
No blame there -- routines change --
but if we could stay in touch more intentionally,
I'd be grateful and greatly blessed.
