ADK, I Miss You
By Malek Allari
“I am sitting down, right now,
Claiming the memories and emotions when I was with you,
I felt happy and free,
And now I am prisoned in my thoughts,
I remember the sound of your waters outside my cabin,
I remember the sound of birds singing their morning song,
I woke up every day with a smile on my face,
Knowing that your soul is still alive,
I remember the smooth touch of your grass on my skin,
I remember the cold water engulfing my body,
I remember the times you had to comfort us with your rain after a sunny day,
Adirondack, you grew up to be my home,
Now, I am longing to feel your comfort and presence fill me with happiness,
I lost track of time when I was with you, and that made me happy,
I remember sitting on a SUP board and watch the sun dive into your waters,
You will always be in my heart, Adirondack,
For I became one of your warriors,
I am proud of what had become of you,
Became the home of thousands of children,
I miss you, for I never had the time to say goodbye,
I miss you, for I never had enough of you,
I will remember you,
For you changed my life for the better."
