Poem: Nighttime Thoughts

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

Nighttime thoughts is about her memories of him haunting her as she lays beneath the covers. She remembers his kiss goodnight and how they laughed. She remembers the best place in the world is in one of his hugs. She wishes he was snuggled up beside her making the lonely night disappear.

Nighttime Thoughts

At night when she lies beneath the covers
the memories of his touch haunt her,
she yearns to feel his body lying next to her.

She remembers his sweet embrace
cuddling with a kiss goodnight,
the two of them laughing
before they finally fall asleep.

She remembers his hugs
each day before work,
wrapping his arms tightly around her
making her feel
like she is in the best place in the world.

She wishes this picture playing in her mind
would come to life
with him snuggled up next to her,
making the loneliness of this night
simply disappear.


Whenever I miss you, I look at my heart. Because it's the only place I can find you.
