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

This is a poem I wrote after my Grandmother passed away in 2004. I will always carry her in my heart and I wish she was here. I still drive by her house hoping to see her sitting upon 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 sitting in your favorite chair.


Even though, my broken heart understands

you are gone,

I find myself continuously driving

past your house.


As if, to catch a glimpse

of you relaxing on the front porch

breathing in the essence from your flowers.


My sad eyes keeping watch

is utterly foolish,

but a piece of me

is with you,

wishing you were here.
