They are gone.
Not a hint of leaving or going or anything.
Just vanished like an alien abduction
Or the rapture
Or falling down a deep, dark well.
Seems like there should be footprints
Or a note in a bottle
Or a message from somebody
Saying they were going away
Or San Diego
Or their mothers.
But no, nothing,
And I didn’t know I would miss them.
But I do.
