A memory of you

In the times
when I am most lonely
when the restlessness
fills my soul
making me long for things
I do not have
and places
I have never seen
why is it you
I remember
the one I never really knew
the maybe-friend
and perhaps more
if time had allowed
and the misunderstandings
never happened
I feel lost
in these times
when I am most weak
and in need of guidance
not later
do I wish to be held
and perhaps kissed
until I know
what I am missing
is you
