I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
"A Piece of Me is Missing" is a poem I wrote after my Grandmother passed away in 2004.
I will always carry her in my heart and wish she was still here.
I still drive by her house hoping to see her sitting on the front porch breathing in the essence of her flowers.
I fear one day I might stop & simply stroll inside.
"Gone too Soon" by Simple Plan
Wish You Were Here
I fear one day
my car will park
and my feet will stroll inside,
believing you are sitting in your favorite chair.
For although my broken heart
remembers you are gone,
I continuously drive
by your house
looking for a glimpse of you
relaxing on the front porch
breathing in the essence of your flowers.
My tear stained eyes keep watch
knowing it's utterly foolish,
but a piece of me
is with you,
wishing you were here.
May the winds of Heaven blow softly
and whisper in your ear
How much we love and miss you
and wish that you were here.
"Since I Lost You"
