Lipstick Stains on the Coffee Mug - a Love Poem
Remembering Her Essence
As I walk into the room I remember
The mornings we spent in splendor
The perfume you wore still arrest the air
But now I am alone, staring at your chair
The morning jokes you made and the kisses and hugs
Come rushing like a subway train when I see that lipstick stain on your coffee mug
I remember when you looked back at me and gave me a tender smile
How was I to know that was the last happiness in my life
I miss you so much, I miss you harder each day
I sometimes just feel like I don’t want to live,
I wish my soul vanish and let the wind take me away.
My mind is crushed, my heart destroyed
Knowing that another love you have enjoyed
I try to move on but you love was so good
It keeps coming back to me.
I try to move on but all I can remember is the nights under the sheets.
Maybe, just maybe we can share your love
He gives you a few kisses, and me the good love.
I miss you, I miss who you are baby
But you are and shall forever be, my first lady.
