Ghostly Figure

Updated on September 13, 2010

Ghostly figure in the night,
Ghostly figure out of sight,
I can sense you every where,
I can also feel your stare...

You come to see where you started,
Just to find out that you've departed.
You still can't get used to seeing me here,
That's why you come back every year. 

I see you almost every night...
Even when you think your out of sight.
You awake me from my sleep,
Just so you can talk to me.

I sit there tired and I listen,
With little comprehension,
Of what you're trying to say,
But I listen anyway.

I'm sorry that you had to leave,
I know you prayed and asked God please...
But he took you home in the night,
And you didn't leave without a fight.

That's why your still here,
Stuck with me...
Slowly realizing,
That you've been set free.

We live in different worlds you and me,
But I feel close to you,
Like a sister, or a friend,
Who I knew... 

You come home every now and then,
To see how things have been,
I know when your around,
Because you turn on the television.

When you want me to listen,
You wake me from my sleep,
By tickling, or tugging at my feet.

When you talk I listen,
Because I know that's what you need.
I'm always here for you,
Like you've been there for me.

Ghostly figure in the night,
I know your here with me....
I can see you standing in the dark,
Watching me as I sleep.

Your welcome to stay here in our home,
As long as you please...

      Hello sweety! How are you? I thought I replied to your last email? Hmm... I am waiting patiently for part 3! *laugh* I am alive and well... blessed with another beautiful day. I have been very busy, busy. So if I did forget to reply to your last email, please forgive me. My life at the moment is beautifully caotic and I love it! Hehe. How about yourself lovely? How have you been?

      Thank you Astra Nomik =-) I'm happy you enjoyed my poem as much as I enjoyed yours. It took some time in getting used to her, seeing her would scare me. But now she's a part of my family. She's actually not from this home though... She's from the care home up the road from where I live.

      Thanks for reading =-) I can't wait to see what you publish next!

      My, what a lovely beautiful poem. Your ghost is friendly and familiar, and you make it sound so appealing. I got your comment on my hub, and came over to read some of your work. This is excellent. :D
