Missing You

southern-1212510_1920

Sitting on the front porch as it starts to rain
Listening to the water dripping down everything
Staring at the empty seat right beside me
Knowing you’d be here if you weren’t off chasing your dreams

And I’m missing you
Missing you
Like the time we spent together discussing our days
Watching sunsets, thunderstorms, and fireworks displays
And I’m missing you
Missing you
I guess I always knew there’d come a day like this
A front porch hug and a goodbye kiss
As my baby girl leaves to take on the world
And now I’m missing you
Missing you

I used to sit out here and watch you ride your bike
At sixteen, I’d bring out the keys you couldn’t find
Yeah, this front porch is more than a place to sit
It’s filled with memories that I’ll never forget

I know you’re away at college today
You’re all grown up and over eighteen
So kid, go ahead and spread your wings
But remember, there’s a seat on this front porch swing
