Poem: A Piece of Me Is With You

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"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"
