Poem: Missing You Everyday

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

"Missing You" by John Waite


It is hard for me to imagine
you not being here,
no longer hearing your voice,
seeing you smile
or touching your hand.

Sometimes this life seems cruel
taking away the one’s we love so dearly,
leaving us an empty feeling in our hearts
for the remainder of our days.

Showing us a love so kind and gentle
taking our breathe away,
consuming our every thought and desire
only to leave us in despair,
hiding the pain as we suffer in silence.


"Since I Lost You" by Phil Collins
