ALWAYS WITH ME

woman-570883_960_720

 

I talked to you yesterday

Even though you’re not here

I talked to you again today

And I will tomorrow too

You always had this way

Of just…

Listening

With your eyes

With your smile

With your heart

You had this quiet way

And I hope you don’t mind

But I am going to keep that

I’m  holding that part of you

Safe and sound and tight

Inside of me to use for good

When I start to feel it fade

I will remember your laugh

Your kind encouragements

The way you lived to serve

And how you changed people

With your kind and gentle way

How you changed me

So yeah…

I will keep talking to you

Though I can’t see you

Because I can still feel you

In the best part of who I am

  1. Great poem on remembering a friend. I think it is perfectly acceptable and normal to talk to dead loved ones who have passed on. A way of bridging our world with our loved ones. Plus, it does make you feel better when you do as you suggest in your poem.

  2. Beautiful tribute to special ones who die. I work in cancers and other diseases, and have unfortunately lost too many dear friends. This will stay in my files for the next time I lose someone (including family). Thanks.
