I carry your heart.

I'm missing her bad today.

It's only been a couple of weeks since my sister left the country, but it's hitting me now.

Communication is difficult and scarce and I'm realizing it may be this way for some time. 

She called at 3:00 am this morning and I missed it.  She only had twenty minutes to talk and I was sleeping.  This is how it's been and how it will be for a while.

I love her.  I really do.

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
-E.E. Cummings

Sorry to be so melancholy my dears.  Perhaps you can relate?
