Missing something everywhere

Streets of London,
Trafalgar square
close by, the Strand stands
it is a very busy fare
already I know I am missing
something dearly everywhere.

Yes, it’s Buckingham Palace,
many fast ones in the underground
yummy veggie burgers,
‘n great British ale
But I know I am missing
something everywhere.

Onto the streets of Lille
charming colors in drench
dining at classy Aux Moules
sipping wine, the best of France
but I know I am missing
something everywhere.

Lovely evening walks at Gamlastan
exploring many a fine Royal Palace
smorgasbord, for dinner and lunch
lots of souvenirs to shop ‘n grace
but I know I am missing
something everywhere.

On the streets of Boston
MIT and Harvard Square
lunch with many a colleague
lots of sugar, lot of energy
but I know I am missing
something everywhere.

Weeks in Columbus, Ohio
it was that fine organic place
Carrot juice, lentil soup
and all of that veggie grace
but I know I am missing
something everywhere.

Exquisite Fuara at San Francisco
delicious Udupi Dosas on Valencia
Slow driving by the Golden Gate
Catching the perfect setting sun
but I know I am missing
something everywhere.

Lovely are those Toronto ways
looking out alone from the Windows
exclusive view on 1 Blue Jays way
sumptuous dining and local draft
but I know I am missing
something everywhere.

Past the initial excitement
of catching flights and eating out
piling on miles and points galore
it just hit me, it was so simple
I wish I had you everywhere.

After years of travel
now that I know what it is
can’t wait for few years more
to revisit all the memories
and go with you everywhere.
