I Missed You - Poem by Melvina Germain

I missed you last night, when the flames burned in the fireplace.
I thought of you and your handsome face.
I longed for your kiss, just waiting to touch you… like this.
Once again, feel me, wrap your arms tenderly around me,
Hold me like there is no tomorrow.

I missed you last night when the shadows danced upon
the wall, I cried through it all. Will you dance with me.
Will you stay with me tonight, or must you leave me again,

I love you, knowing it should not be, for you belong to
another and I….well I’m your second place, but I choose
to be with you. I want to capture your every being, to keep
you close to me when you and I can no longer see each
other. I want you to become a part of me. I shall never
give you up.

I missed you last night when I held my warm cup of tea
My lips wanted you, but you weren’t there…
I missed you in the middle of the night offering a
safe hand, holding me tight, but you weren’t there. I
closed my eyes tight and I thought only of you. As I sat
there on the edge of my bed, clasping my hands together
I thought of you and I, so close, our bodies
Entwined, and I day dreamed of a life spent with you.

The tears fell from my eyes as I thought of the emptiness
I feel inside. I can not leave you, you are my everything.
I found you and now, I’m lost within your grasp. What
shall I do, I’ve fallen so much in love with you.

I know what’s wrong, I know what’s right, but I’m
desperately in love with you. I won’t leave you, I will
wait until the end of time, and if you leave me, then I will
hope to be with you in another life.

I longed for you, wanting you, wanting to make love with you,
Needing you, needing to touch you, your warm embrace
feeling your heart beat, and your lips on mine, I love
you, you’re one of a kind.

I missed this morning, as I do every morning, for mornings
are not mine, holidays are not mine, Sundays are not mine.
I chose this life and I will live the moments given, even if
only for a short time.
There are those who would call me a fool, but I believe you
are an exception to the rule. You will be mine, one day, I
must believe it’s true. Though now my heart is feeling
blue, I will treasure every moment I share with you.
Every moment, I share with you.

I missed you last night…..
