Does It Mean That I’m Indispensable?

Here I thought I was an unessential,

Not more than a passing breeze to lighten

The harshness of this wounding heat,

Not more than a passing smile and nod,

Another count for approval

That soon, too, will be forgotten.

Here I thought I was an uncertainty,

An existence that would not be

Seen as more than what it presents;

Not that it is unknowable

But because it is not worth knowing.

But now, here I wonder why

Amidst all that I am not,

And all that I can no longer be,

He misses me.
