I miss you like I'd miss my favourite Sunday roast,

Like one would miss the Father,the Son and the Holy Ghost,

I miss you like I'd miss the air I am breathing,

Or a dead Grandparent one is constantly grieving,

I miss you.

 

I miss you like I'd miss a hot bath and my favourite bed,

Like one would miss the drinking of wine and sharing of bread,

I miss you like I'd miss the words I am saying,

Or the sound of the children in the back garden playing,

I miss you.

 

I miss you like I'd miss a double cheeseburger meal,

Like one would miss the combustion engine and wheel,

I miss you like we all miss world peace,

Or like Sting would miss singing and The Police,

I miss you.

 

I miss you like I miss the energy of my youth,

Like the Detective Inspector would miss the final proof,

I miss you like I'd miss the sight in my eyes,

Or like a fat bloke would miss giant sized pies,

I miss you.
