The Things That Make Me Miss You


I miss your footsteps in the hallway.
Arriving home from work at 6, always.
You would always forget to wipe your feet.
Leaving a trail of dirty footprints for me.

I miss your singing in the shower.
Missing the high notes, always.
You would always forget the words to a song.
But without a pause you would carry on.

I miss your laughter at late night tv.
Reciting to me the punchlines, always.
You would always forget the important lines.
Even the jokes you told me all the time.

I miss the essence of you.
The things that only you do.
The words that only you could ever say.
To take the yearning for you,
completely away.

    I feel as though you have lost someone, the circumstances, I could never guess. Pain is evident, in poetry that touches the heart. Lovely. (Report) Reply

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
