I Miss You

Dear Sister,

I remember your name,
I remember your face,
I remember your style,
And your different taste.

I remember our fights,
I remember our laughs,
I remember our arguments, for the silly little tops.

I remember the times we spent together,
I remember the times we avoided each other,
I remember the times we slept under the moon,
counting the stars like funny little fools.

I remember the days you kissed me,
I remember the days you slapped me,
But then I thought your decision was right,
to move to a hostel, for both of us to spend peaceful nights.

But my nightmare started right there,
When I waved you a goodbye,
With no one to fight and no one to laugh,
I shed tears longing for you to come back.

I remember each moment I spent alone,
I remember the terrible situations I couldn’t handle,
I remember each time that I longed to see a shooting star,
to wish for you to come back.

I remember each time that I hesitated to tell you,
I remember each time when I longed for you to read my mind,
Now, that I feel it’s ‘now or never’,
Here comes the truth that I always wanted to tell you,
‘I terribly miss you! ! ’

    Very very moving poem. Absolutely loved the way you express your sentiments. 'nobody knows what they've got till it's gone' is definately a saying that you followed well in this. Amazing your ability to keep a consistent upbeat rhythm while writing about something so saddening. I can definately relate myself. The fact that when you are used to the company of another and find yourself alone, you no longer know what to do and instead reminisce about the times you once had. definately a 10 out of 10. You captured the emotions perfectly in each line. It continued to build up and up and up and then like a rollercoaster just dropped. That's what readers can relate to is the tragic things that happen.

    Dear Anusha, The value of near & dear ones is realised better when they are far away and for a longer time. You’ve excellently brought out your feelings. The flow is smooth. You will, certainly, be a great poet. Keep it up. # 10.
