Missing Someone Poem by Lora Colon


I never met him, our paths never crossed
So what am I missing, what have I lost?
I wander in the shadows, seeking the light,
Who am I missing tonight?

Was he in the crowd, did we pass in the street?
Were we on the same train, did our eyes ever meet?
Would knowing the truth make anything right?
Who am I missing tonight?

Does he think of the girl he never met?
How cruel fate is to show no regret!
Alone with his thoughts, does he dim the light
And wonder who he's missing tonight?

Now my hair is gray, my looks are gone,
Through crowded streets I walk alone.
Remembering my youth, my thoughts take flight
Who am I missing tonight?

    Now my hair is gray, my looks are gone,
    Through crowded streets I walk alone.
    Remembering my youth, my thoughts take flight
    Who am I missing tonight?
    Heart touching words! In our life's journey, we happen to love someone so profoundly but, so silently, that our love goes unnoticed. Yet at ripe age, our minds perhaps do not regret much, though our thoughts take flight, and remember the person we so profoundly miss, as s/he leave a permanent impression in our minds.
    Lady, I loved your poem and thank you very much for this excellent piece. (Report) Reply
