Missing You - Poem by London Love Poems

As I whisper your name
the blend of colours
and tone bring your
your smile back home.

I sit in the breeze
as this blessed whisper
returns to me.

The feel of gentle
rain showers me
with your love, as
it falls like tears
from my face.

I breathe the loving
air that reminds me
of your heavenly scent
as I sit here in our
once favourite place.

The willow, still stands
with its emerald loving
hands, that we'd lie
beneath making love
which was always
so unplanned.

I run my lonely fingers
over the flattened blades
As I picture you there
in the willow shade.

I remember the way
you would smile
looking into my eyes
as we shared our
love for one another.

Raising my hand
I wipe away the tear
of these memories
as I now sit lonely
under our tree.

I look to the dream
filled skies, as a single
bird flies to-ward
the heavens as I cry.

    The tree would be lucky to shade the pearl like this, that it companied the poetess in her happiness and agonies of solitude.

    Beautiful Jon. It's like a celebration of what has been, not a lament for what is lost. N (Report)Reply

    This is another melancholy poem of a lost love, Jon, and it is also very well written and expressed, telling it's poignant tale exceptionally well from beginning to end.
