Diana Poems

Sometimes I Feel You

Sometimes I feel you
Your presence

Tickling my neck
Sometimes I feel you

Waking up
Feeling my Sweat drip

I saw you
Sometimes I reach for you

My hand stretching
My muscles stiffening

I cannot get to you
Sometimes I talk to you

My eyes closed
In the middle of the night

When my body sleeps
And my mind does not

Sometimes I feel you
Dripping from the sky

You are lonely
You seem sad

You bring weather
That makes my bones weak

Sometimes I feel you
Through my window

Gently stroking the blinds
Sometimes I hear you

Whistling through the air
Creating a tornado of despair

Sometimes I grieve for you
Your life was too short

When you left this world
I wasn't even born

But, you are not a stranger
You are my angel

And when you cry
You bring rain

And when you smile
The clouds move

Like your lips do
And the sunshine peaks through

Sometimes I feel you
Through black and white pictures

Your eyes gazing at me
Seeing the creation your daughter has made

You try hard to smile
Behind a garden

You have tamed
Only soon

Your garden will no longer be in your hands
Your eyes dry up

Your flowers dry up
Your hands no longer tame gardens on Earth

Sometimes I feel you
Through my mothers garden

Sometimes I taste you
Through my mothers recipes

Sometimes I see you
Through my mothers eyes
