I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Yearning for you is a poem about the feelings one experiences when they have lost someone they love. Each part of the day is filled with hopes for an illusion to be true.
"Since I Lost You" by Phil Collins
Yearning for You
I hear echoes of your voice
as I walk through the rooms
of this empty house,
picturing you sitting upon the couch.
Familiar smells linger
from the kitchen,
as I grasp this illusion
hoping you are preparing dinner.
I remember the tired look on your face
as you load laundry in the washer,
fold clothes, then put them away
upset because it takes all day,
wondering how you do it all with ease.
I can no longer lay in our bed
without you next to me,
as I fall asleep alone
waiting to feel your lips touch mine,
I hope it is real.
