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.

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.

a-piece-of-me-is-with-you

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.
