Sometimes I miss you more..

Today I woke Up Crying
Today I woke Up Crying

Today I woke Up Crying



No it wasn't a bad dream , I didn't hear any bad news,
Still I feel sad, I feel heavy,melancholy somehow ,and I miss someone.

Someone I haven't thought about for a little while now
Not that they have ever been far from my thoughts , memories are gentle and soft.

Today I woke up crying and the sadness wouldn't go away.
So as I made some fresh coffee and
decided to let my heart feel this way.

Mr Red Robbin Saw Me Crying

Its a Friday morning ,

Fridays are good , almost like they give you permission to unwind, or slow down ,like its prize giving day for showing up all the other days in the week.

From busy exec to busy mum ,don't matter , if you were present, you get the Friday award too. Fridays are good, this Friday is good in a sad kinda way

Today I woke up crying,

I think I know why this certain
Friday is good

What happened to my heart ,as I slept before today

And as I stood on the porch, admiring the sun spreading her warm rays on everything in her path , a curious Red Robbin cocked his head to say:

Hi, whats up with you today?


Silently I answered " Today would have been her birthday" and I miss her love so, and heard her voice saying " I didn't want to leave you this way"

Today I woke up crying
For so long her memory has kept me strong and although Ive lost my way at times, she had come to remind me on her day
Keep hoping , keep living , keep smiling

Was just me calling your heart this Friday to remind you

All this time
I never did move that far away

Love from your Mum.

You know I don't write poetry either, but I decided a couple of months back that I would do so when I can finally write about my mom, who passed away in December, 2007. Right now it still hurts too much, but like you, I hope to do so one day when she enters my thoughts like all moms do.

Thanks for writing this, it is very special.

Hi Dori , An old lady told me once ,that tears were a language between our hearts and Gods, and sometimes its to wash away the crap that He dont want us to carry anymore too.

I used to wonder seriously how much one person could cry!!

Take care ~ least we know, we have feelings huh.

Im back!! I discoverd a thingy that lets me see all the comments I made so I can come back and see what new is goign on. Its almost as exciting as smileys!! I too, have lost some dear ones, and remember some days in much the same way. Day to day is better now, but its kinda like arthritis, the wound didn't heal all the way and every once in a while, like when it rains, it aches some. I still really like this poem. And its not all the way a "sad" poem to me. Its hopefull some too.

Eaglekiwi 7 years ago from -Oceania Author

@ Dennisematt , lol@ finding buttons, Im like that too ,find some new feature and it makes me feel like I found an extra christmas present ,lol. Good anology too, its life and tears are healthy ,kinda gets rid of the 'yukkies' and emotions change al the time huh...la la la lala...sing it God is great B...is good...P...are crazy lol

But I have dreams like that as well, they still throw me.

I woke up crying today,

seems Redneck had to go away.

Reading forums makes me blue,

beer is still good...

and I miss you!!

Your email notification is turned off,

Im not sure what to do.

I wanted to say "hello,"

and I hope you are well.

Will I ever get to come back?

Only time will tell.

I'll keep reading,

and voting you up.

Time now, for more drink in my cup.

PS, ask the ralwus,

he has my adress...

Thankyou PoetL ,maybe I will try my hand at poetry sometime, read yours n others an get some ideas etc. I used to love it at school and sometimes ya just gotta get something out aye.


ralwus 6 years ago

Well girl, I am so glad that I was pointed in this direction. How ever did I miss this one? I too have a sad day remembering my loved ones who have passed. Ach well, that is part of living I reckon. Don't want no one to feel sad when I am gone, be happy. And yes, the ralwus seems to gather much any more. LOL Hurting people need some love and tenderness once in awhile. Some like to turn to the old ralwus. Well, I don't mind at all, I been there too. Hugs dear one. CC


Brenda Durham 6 years ago

I was right there, with you, in the mood of that poem.

Sometime I'd like to share one I wrote, similar, about a loved one of mine who suffers from depression. I'm not ready to share yet, but maybe sometime...

Anyway, I like your simplistic heart-grabbing style in the poem.

DoorMattnomore 5 years ago

Hi EK. I searched my old me so I could see some of the funny stuff from "the good old days" and found this. Still an amazing, touching poem. I haven't woken up crying latley, but have put myself to sleep with tears a couple times. I hope you are well, and happy. :)

This is a gem. Taking time out of life to "spend it" in the thoughts and "company" and "presence" of a loved one - is always a good thing, and so don't have regrets. The person stays part of us long after they part from this world. It's a measure of how deep our feelings for them ... are.


Eaglekiwi profile image

Eaglekiwi 4 years ago from -Oceania Author

Thanks CG,its almost like a therapy or that feeling you get as you leave the house, and think," I feel like Ive forgotten something"...and often its to remember those special feelings and how after the storm,comes the sunshine.

I am energised.

Thank you my friend xxoo
