I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.
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.

No pam, just a poem for my friend who lost his.
Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on May 12, 2019:
This is such a well written poem that I could feel the loss also. I hope this account is not true for you, but the writing sounds so true.

Clive I hope this is not true. I felt the loss through your words. Blessings..
