The Things That Make Me Miss You


I miss your footsteps in the hallway.
Arriving home from work at 6, always.
You would always forget to wipe your feet.
Leaving a trail of dirty footprints for me.

I miss your singing in the shower.
Missing the high notes, always.
You would always forget the words to a song.
But without a pause you would carry on.

I miss your laughter at late night tv.
Reciting to me the punchlines, always.
You would always forget the important lines.
Even the jokes you told me all the time.

I miss the essence of you.
The things that only you do.
The words that only you could ever say.
To take the yearning for you,
completely away.

    I feel as though you have lost someone, the circumstances, I could never guess. Pain is evident, in poetry that touches the heart. Lovely. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
