Missing You - Poem by David Wood

The life we had was all we had
And the life we had was ours

The love we had was all we had
But the love we had was ours

The hope we had was all we had
And the hope we had was ours

The new home we had was all we had
But the home we had was ours

You’ve now been gone a year
But you know my dear I’m still
Yours, yours, yours.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

To my late wife Tina,9/4/1956 – 29/4/2012 the first anniversary

    This is maybe the first poem of yours I ever read.
    And it has the same consonant musical quality as
    the rest. (Report) Reply

    A sad yet positive poem David and as we all know poetry can be cathartic.
