Poem: Always 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

Always you is a poem about two people whose love is destroyed. They miss one another knowing that the words I'm sorry is not enough. They hold one another with tears of happiness in their eyes feeling a lonely heartache. The attraction they feel for one another pulls them back together.

Always You

She misses the heartfelt words

I love you,

the tender touch when he kisses her goodnight

but most of all,

She misses being wrapped in his arms.


She misses making him smile,

hearing him laugh,

seeing the light dancing in his eyes,

but most of all,

she misses the sound of his voice.


Her thoughts drive her insane

replaying each scene like it was yesterday,

yearning for time to reverse,

for the words

I’m sorry

isn’t quite enough.


Their love for one another

took a different path

losing the two of them along the way,

there are no words that can make it right,

no secret touch to make it reappear.


Only a lonely heartache

with tears of happiness,

as they hold one another close

attempting to feel a spark

to reignite their passion.


Each minute gets lost as time spins forward,

the force of this grip pulls them back

to an attraction too hard to escape.
