Missing You

“Missing You” by John Waite was one of my mom’s favorite songs. When I hear it or “I Can Dream About You” by Dan Hartman, I will always think of her. She’d sing along off key like it was no one’s business. She loved music just as much as I did.

Now-a-days, when I hear the song, it’s almost at a moment when I need to know she’s there for me or near me. Sometimes, it’s just a moment when I need to know that I am loved.

Gareth Asher, one my favorite singer/songwriters, does an amazing cover “Missing You” and when I discovered it today, it was as if my mom were here hugging me. A hug that I didn’t know I needed but so glad to have felt.
