Poem: I Am Right Here

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"I Will Be Right Here Waiting for You" by Richard Marx

The rooftops we sleep under
may not be the same
but you are here
with me each night.

As I drift off to sleep,
I miss you lying next to me
waiting for your goodnight kiss,
laughing the way we used too.

I long to feel your cold hands,
to feel you toss and turn
stealing all my covers,
to hear you shut the TV off
thinking I am fast asleep.

I miss looking at you
when you are sound asleep,
wrapping you in my arms,
curling up close beside you,
feeling blessed you are in my life.

As I dream
I picture us together
passionately loving one another,
only to wake up
and miss you once again.

I am not going anywhere,
I am right here,
anytime you need me
let me know.
