Leaving this Place

When I am gone you will only notice the house is untouched. When I am gone you will only notice that dinner is not made. When I am gone you will only notice that the bills are unpaid. When I am gone you will only notice the simple things you took for granted.

When I am gone you will not miss me you will only miss the things I once did.

When I am gone you will only notice the sun is dim. When I am gone you will only notice the sweet smell of cookies gone away. When I am gone you will only notice the the empty space.

When I am gone you will not miss me you will only miss the things I once did.

      This is a very significant poem and in a relationship it can be easy for our loved ones to take us for granted.

      Communication and persistance is the key, sometimes they are so comfortable that they do not see the signs of distress and we often expect them to just know. These problems are often resolved with clearly expressed direct communication. Unfortunately our husbands do not think the way that we do and we may need to calmly spell it out for them :)

      Excellent poem.

      A very poignant poem that vividly describes a feeling many women have in their marriages. That everything they do is unappreciated and taken for granted, and they would onl be missed through the things that wouldn't be done if they were gone. Well written.
