Poem: You Are With Me for the Rest of My Days

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

You are with me the rest of my days is a poem that expresses the gratitude we all have for someone who touched our lives. A part of this person will remain with you for the rest of your days. You carry their words in your heart for all time. You are thankful they were a part of your life.

"Jealous of the Angels - by Donna Taggert"


You Are With Me The Rest Of My Days

For each mistake I made
you warned me beforehand,
yet allowed me to learn
on my own.

I wish I could see you
at this moment,
as I hear your words
replay in my thoughts
your presence lingering in my heart
realizing a part of you
is with me
for the rest of my days.

I thank you
for being a person
with a kind heart,
for caring about me
when I did not ask,
for knowing I needed a friend
when I kept silent
and alone,
not letting anyone inside.

You were always there
with a smile,
a joke,
a friendly shoulder
to say,
“You are okay kid.
You learned life the hard way,
it has made you strong.
You are going to make it
You have what it takes
Strength and Courage.”
