Miss You - Poem by Leigh Ladd

There is a hole inside of me,
A spot you used to fill.
I can't seem to reach your heart,
Though you are so near.

I know it was the words I said,
My anger got in the way.
Then there were my fears,
And the mistake of stating my dreams.

The way you made me smile,
You brightened all of my days.
My hope is that back then,
I might have done the same for you.

Now that I am not the one you think of,
I know your days are much easier.
No longer having to worry
If I had got enough attention.

Your life is full,
I had asked you for too much.
I understand your separation from me,
But I miss you and your loving heart.

Searching is all I have left,
To find something to fill the emptiness inside.
Yet my memories of you
I will always keep close by.
