Still (poem)

Updated on October 11, 2015

When I think of you

and the times gone by

of all that has been

and all that ever was,

I still feel you near.

I still expect to see you

greet me hello

check in on my day

or give a sweet goodbye.

I imagine

the conversations

thoughts I would share

and the news I have heard

or the opinions you would offer.

Long after you left

I still smell your sweet scent

in the clothes that I wear

on an old shirt you forgot

and in the air that I breathe.

I can still

see your dear smile

encouraging me

drawing me near

and anchoring me.

Never can I forget

your deep soulful eyes

so blue and clear

staring into all of me

as if I was the only one alive.

With me still

are all your hopes and every dream you shared

of what our life could encompass

and who you wanted to be.

They carry me along

give me to the courage

to begin again

and make me certain

of what I know

is that still I believe

that we will find our way

together once more.

      Our memories live on, especially in lovely poems like yours. Did you mean to write 'sweat' goodbye? I know some goodbyes can be sweaty, so I'm just wondering.

      It can take a long time to get used to someone not being there...I think most of us can resonate with captured the feelings and the heightened senses that accompany us at such times very well here :-))
