The Things That Make Me Miss You - Poem by Rachel Henley

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
