Poem: Yearning For 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

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.

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.
