Bleeding Hearts - Poem by Jennie Renee Sparrow

I wanted to say that I miss you very much,
I miss your scent and I miss your every touch,
So many years with you but it still wasn't enough.

When we use to snuggle on a Friday night,
During scary movies when you held me tight,
Did I tell you that I dreamt about you last night.

It was so real to me but then I woke,
I then thought about the words when we last spoke,
Now the words I speak to you are how my heart is broke.

Do you remember our sacred place,
How you took me by surprise and put a smile upon my face,
Did you know that you could never be replaced.

I can hear you whispering,
Is that you among our favorite tree,
I can feel your presence in the summer breeze.

Thoughts of you when I hear our song,
I wonder how it all went wrong,
Was that you that touched my shoulder as I sat at the pond,
I know it was but I know I have to stay strong.

Out of misery I want to scream and shout,
I want to yell at the top of my lungs but the words won't come out,
This isn't right what is this all about,
My world was turned upside down and is now full of doubt.

I hoped this nightmare was untrue,
I've thought it all over and through,
With you gone I just don't know what I'm going to do.
Who would have thought that the next poem I wrote was about you.

Without you I don't know who or what I'll be,
Together we were one as we planted our seeds,
You are what I have always wanted and what I need,
This is what it sounds like when my broken heart bleeds.
