Tu Me Manques

'Tu me manques'
Doesn't mean
'I miss you',
As such.
Translated, it's
Something 
Far more poetic,
More like
'You are missing from me'.

Tu me manques.
You are an
Essential part of 
My body, my soul;
Without you I am
Incomplete.

Suddenly, French makes
A lot more sense
To me.

    It is so hard to transliterate from one language to another and achieve 'le mot juste' I love the French language. Just the pronunciation gives me goose bumps! You capture the dilemma perfectly here. Well done! luv, Keith :)
