Poem: Wishing You Were Here

Updated on October 2, 2012
Source

This poem is based on song lyrics that I wrote a few years ago about missing the one that you love because you two are apart due to his/her job, involvement in a long distance relationship or whatever the scenario. It reflects the feelings that one may have especially when darkness falls because you want to feel that closeness and oneness with your significant other. Keep in mind that I am not necessarily referring to the physical act but the intimacy of having the one you love right there with you.

Enjoy!

Verse 1

I'm looking out the window,

Staring into darkness,

Imagining your sweet face,

And soft gentle caress,

Baby I miss you so,

How much you'll never know,

And I'm longing to show you.

Verse 2

I wonder what you're doing,

And I wish that I was there,

To hold you, squeeze you, love you,

And show you how much I care,

My mind is so wrapped up,

With your loving all the time,

But all that I have is an image of you in my mind.

Chorus

I'm wishing you were here,

Holding me near,

Wishing you were here,

And I'd never shed a tear,

Wishing you were here with me.

Verse 3

My heart is there with you,

Helping to pull me through the madness,

The love that we share,

Is beyond compare,

I need you beside me, to hold me and love me.

Chorus

I'm wishing you were here,

Holding me near,

Wishing you were here,

And I'd never shed a tear,

Wishing you were here with me.
