Every moment I spent with you
Was like a beautiful dream come true
It was the best dream I ever saw
More colorful than a rainbow
Your pretty voice is echoing in my ear
The splendid sound I ever hear
No Nightingale’s song
Can compare to your glamorous tone
Those alighting brown eyes
As bright as twinkling stars in the sky
I always wanted to hold your hand
Between my arms close to my heart
My wish was to hug you hard
And listen to the beat of your heart

I can still feel your smell
The wonderful charming spell
You taught me about love
Your love made my life alive
Whenever I see your face
My whole heart fills with grace
My life was like a dark cold night
You were the only luminaire warming light
My dream was to see your smile
And walk with you all over this glorious isle
You were the queen of my dream worlds
I don’t know how to explain my feelings in words
But, when you leave me alone with the feeling of spleen
I could realize that was just a daydream.

—Shanike Priyananda

2. Every Moment

As each star comes out to shine
As the wind rustles across the land
As the moonlight sweeps across the room
I’m thinking of you.

When the sun burns its morning greeting
When the birds chirp and swoop through the sky
When the leaves of the trees dance through the air
I’m thinking of you.

During the haze of late afternoon sun
During the smooth swirl and flow of the clouds across the sky
During the fade of the bustling day
I’m thinking of you.

While the twilight shadows begin to fall
While the evening air begins to chill
While the crickets begin their sweet evening chorus
I’m thinking of you.

Just as the darkest hour of the night falls
Just as the world is hushed and silent
Just as dreamland beckons,
I’m thinking of you

Every day
Every hour
Every moment
I’m thinking of you through the miles
and loving you.

3. Each And Every Moment I Miss You

For each and every moment
Every second I exist
I live and breathe for you
Your love I can’t resist
To live and love this lifetime
You are in my daily prayer
For times when you’re not with me
When I close my eyes you’re there
For every dance together
For every star above
The light that burns within us
The passion of your love
With dreams so never ending
For every sparkling sea
For each sunrise and sunset
I feel your love in me
For every breath worth taking
More then the air I breathe
The love that lives within me
Forever I believe
For each and every moment
And every heartfelt kiss
I am always thinking of you
And of the things I’d miss
For every hug that we have shared
And every soft embrace
For every smile turned to laughter
No other could take your place
For each and every moment
This heart so warm and pure
Gently caresses each heartbeat
And I could not ask for more

— William Lindenmuth

You were everything to me
You were the love I thought I had design for myself
But fate could be so cruel sometimes

I’d like to believe there’s still true happiness
That would walk in as soon as I open up the door
I’d love to believe I’m more than okay
Though it’s different from what my reflection shows

I want to scream until it reaches you
Scream until my voice make you stumble
I want to scream until you can hear no more
Scream until I get weak, can’t speak and just weep

Don’t avoid the aches creeping in my soul
Taste the bitter tears dropping on the floor
Every inch of me wants to see you crawl
Let me show you where I’ve been

Don’t look away see my existence
Even if you close my eyes you’d still see my presence
And with every air you breathe i’ll make you remember
The smell of grief underneath my skin

You cannot escape i’ll follow you everywhere
I’ll be the nightmare you thought you’d never had
And I won’t stop until I get satisfied
I’ll never stop until you’re out of your mind…

—Rhea Anne Paas-Rance

5. Heart Song

Until our final kiss goodbye
I didn’t know that hearts could fly
But mine flew away
With you that day.

Distance, so few thoughts I gave,
Until you had to leave that day.
But in that moment I could feel
That distance is heavy, hard, and real.

I didn’t know that heartstrings tied
And tangled up so much inside.
Until the last smile you sent my way
When you had to go that day.

I never thought that time could seem
So cold and cruel that I could scream.
Until the long hours after you’d gone,
As my heart cried until the dawn.

Now I am just holding on
For the moment our love’s sweet song
Together loud and true will ring
As so in love our hearts will sing.


6. You And I

At the thought of you
my eyes love teary drops
It makes me smile but at times weary
How can one love a woman so much
When a memory of you plays in my mind
I know everything about expression
I know pain with a glass in hands
I sleep with the radio on because I miss you
I hear your swift sweet sighs of breath
You make anew what grief destroyed
You’re the reviver of old departed memories
I’m a man and I got to let a woman go
You’re moving forward in another man’s arms
I hope he sees nature doesn’t make one like you
Can’t you see it’s got to be the Lord
Who makes you so beautiful
And everything that He done touched
Like your mind, body and soul
Is enough to be my world
It’s not a fluke
That I’m still here waiting for you
That if you drop a glass
A glass in thousand pieces
Can mirror my heart

As I sit here and watch the cars drive by fast
Enjoying the day, I dream of the past
I think of the love of times long ago
When we were so young and I was your beau
But the day is too pretty for me to be sad
So I sit and I smile with memories we had
We got into trouble but we sure had fun
Fantabulous times, I miss you a ton
The sun is now setting. Before I’m lonely and blue,
I will sit, I’ll have faith, in our God; He is true.

— Brian Russell

8. Our Hill

I sit on our hill
There is silence, except for the breath of the world
It caresses the leaves softly
Tenuously, as I imagine my hand would touch your face

It stirs dormant memories
Precious baubles fill my consciousness
A smile, a laugh, a caress, a scent
Your touch, your embrace, your kiss

The Autumn sun warms my face
Awakens me
As I walk away, eyes closed
I can feel your hand in mine

— Jon Hart

When I’m missing you,
I walk to the river’s edge.
Frozen or free-flowing,
it soothes me;
sends me back to our small adventures.
Stargazing. Fireflies.
All-day swimming.
Long goodbyes.
No matter how cold it is outside,
our summers warm me,
and we’re together again.

— Heather Grace Stewart

For they stir sweet melodies.

A hug, cuddle or touch would ease my aching soul,
I long to be with you,
For you are what makes me whole…

Each morning I wake up
thinking of you
I remember you’re not with me
and it makes me feel blue
I miss your smile
I miss your touch
Sometimes my heart aches
I miss you so much
I call you on the telephone
I write to you in a letter
You always tell me I’m not alone
You always make me feel better
I’m writing this to let you know
just how much I love you so
Even though we’re miles apart
your right here beside me
inside my heart.

12. Your Voice

Your Voice; I miss you poems

Your voice is gone
And every echo vanished
To delicate vibration
Beyond the realm of hearing—
Except within my soul—
There deathless dwelling ever.
Always my ear
Is yearning toward that cadence,
Not for a theme of kindness
Nor yet a rhythmic beauty—
So many share of these—
But for its truth and power.
My inward ear
In memory holds a semblance—
Deluding consolation—
But sentient ear, more human,
Alert, will crave and wait
And find contentment never.

— Ruby Archer
