Missing List

I miss the silence 
occasionally deafening 
I miss the comeraderie 
when we clapped and held a light 
I miss the frequent family chats 
via zoom and what's app 
I miss you telling me 
stay safe wear a mask 
I miss the endless hours  
the wonder of what to do now 

I don't miss the daily briefings 
that always kept us waiting 
I don't miss the warnings 
that always came too late 
I don't miss the graphs 
with their axis of death 
I don't miss the lies 
the double standards  
I don't miss missing you 
when missing you was all I missed
