OH! HOW I WISH YOU WERE HERE


By the dim white milk glass light I write~

Oh! How I wish you were here~

I wish it with all my might! ~

Oh! How I wish you were here!

As I sit here in the confining brown box~

Oh! How I wish you were here~

Forlorned you are here not~

Oh! How I wish you were here.



While knick knacks seem to close in and clutter~

Oh! How I wish you were here~

It would make my words meaningful to utter~

Oh! How I wish you were here.

As the thump of the old washer wosh-sess~

Oh! How I wish you were here~

You are the one who gives my life purpose~

Oh! How I wish you were here.


The sounds of life in the next domain cascade into my room~

Oh! How I wish you were here~

Why does the air seem like impending doom? ~

Oh! How I wish you were here.

I sit here alone alert and yearning to the ring-less telephone~

Oh! How I wish you were here~

I to myself grumble and groan~

Oh! How I wish you were here.



The long day has turned to a long night~

Oh! How I wish you were here~

I would hug you so tight~

Oh! How I wish you were here.

I have occupied myself and done all I can do today~

Oh! How I wish you were here~

I wish you were here to play~

Oh! How I wish you were hereā€¦

Who are you missing in the poem??? A lover? a husband? a child??? Just curious! I have loved ones I miss who are in Heaven, and a son and grandchildren who lives thousands of miles away and haven't seen in 5 years. :(

Grandma Jean ~~Thank you so much for stopping by~~I do have other poems I wrote about missing my children, but this one happens to be one I wrote with a lover in mind.

I miss who are in Heaven also, and sometimes I feel like they are near me here on Earth, at least I take great comfort in the memories of them...Big Hugs to you..May you always be blessed with oodles of PURE LOVE surrounding you.
