1. Last Night Dream

Last night I had a dream,
We were walking hand in hand,
On a deserted island beach,
Over endless miles of sand,

The moon was shining bright,
You looked over at me and smiled,
Your eyes so full of passion,
Our thoughts both running wild,

We laid down and held each other,
So close but never enough,
The tides came in and nearly covered us,
As we made pure and beautiful love,

I had never known so much beauty,
As your skin in the pale moon light,
Every moment so intense and new,
On this warm, dark and blissful night.

But as the sun rose the next morning,
You disappeared and left me alone,
I’m still on that deserted island,
Come back and bring me back home…

—Sanika Tate

2. Daydream

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

3. I Cry

I’m sitting on the porch,
Wind blowing through my hair.
The ducks are frolicking in the pond,
But I just can’t seem to care.

Life goes on around me.
I don’t participate.
I go through all the motions,
But what I really do is wait.

I dream about the day
That you’ll come home to me.
Nothing else is important.
Why can’t people see?

I don’t want to go out.
I don’t want to have fun.
I don’t want to do a thing
Until all is said and done.

They took you in the summer.
Now fall is almost finished.
Winter will be here very soon,
And then the year will have diminished.

You have no idea how much I cry.
I never let you know.
It’s so hard out here without you,
But I’m not allowed to let it show.

I must pretend all is fine.
Everyone thinks all’s okay,
But what I never ever tell them
Is that I cry for you every day.

—Susan Christensen

4. How It Used To Be

I remember how it used to be
when nothing else matter but you and me.
Music, country roads, and future dreams.

I miss you, I wish you could see.
Although you are here, I miss you and me.

I remember when you said how happy I made you,
and you really meant it…now, it’s just a phrase
you say without thinking.

I miss those days when you’d call just to say, “Hi,”
or, “I love you.” Those days it was so hard
just to say good-bye for a while.

I remember how wonderful it felt the first time
you held me in your arms, and how after all those
years you still made my heart melt.

I miss the old you and the old me,
The old us that could just sit and talk for hours
and never run out of things to say.

I remember when time simply stood still,
when in each other’s arms was the only place
we wanted to be…forever.

I miss us as I remember how it used to be…
when nothing else mattered but you and me.

— Melanie Edwards

5. Dearest Love

I see you in my thoughts and dreams,
When I awake, how real it seems.
You aren’t here to comfort me,
But soon I hope you will be.
No one truly knows or understands;
You have my heart in your hands.
My love is what you truly own.
Come soon and make our house a home.

Inside those walls you are doing your time,
Not being here with me is your only true crime.
Others in your life will come and go,
But my love is true, and i’m sure you know.

I may not be rich or the prettiest one,
But I love you so much; you are my sun.
You light up my life every time you call.
When the time is up, I begin to fall.
You are my stars, you are my moon,
Being with you will come very soon.
So when you sleep, take this to heart,
No one or nothing will keep us apart.

— Sherri Brown

6. For Love’s Sake

I’m so tired of this empty feeling.
I’m so tired of being alone.
I lay here staring at the ceiling,
Waiting by the phone.

I jump when the phone rings.
It brings a smile to my face.
When he hangs up my heart stings,
And I sink back into my lonely place.

I wish and I dream
That we’ll be together soon.
I can’t wait until we can look up hand in hand
At the stars and at the moon.

I yearn for his kisses
His touch – His embrace.
I can’t wait for Thursdays
When I get to see his face.

I’m flooded with thoughts of him
In my heart, soul, and mind.
I imagine his touch,
So gentle and kind.

I try not to weep.
I hope he doesn’t hear my cries,
But I can’t stop the tears
Falling from my eyes.

I cry a thousand tears
And think – how much more can I take?
But in my heart I know I’d wait a thousand years
All for love’s sake.

— Susan Christensen

7. 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.

– Unknown

8. I Miss You

I miss you so much
That it makes me blue.
I couldn’t even enjoy my day
Because I kept on thinking of you.

Oh, I miss your smile.
I miss your face
That fills that empty place.

I miss how everything used to be,
When nothing mattered but you and me.

I’ve never felt this way.
My love toward you grows day by day.

The way you talk and flirt is so sweet
That it makes my heart skip a beat.

You always know how to make me happy.
You always make me smile.
I can’t imagine how my life will be without you,
Even if it’s just for a while.

So I will keep on believing in destiny,
Because unlike you,
I believe that we are truly meant to be,
Forever just you and me.

— Reem

9. 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

10. Lonely

You left me alone, I didn’t cry,
I didn’t call you didn’t try.
Out of all the things I chose you,
I said I love you I really do.

But now that you are with her,
I don’t know why I really care.
I tried to get over you,
But I realized that my love is true.

I did all I could to forget,
But I couldn’t do it you bet.
I waited for you on cold nights,
And watched over you from great heights.

Now that you have forgotten me,
I always stand under the tree.
Waiting for you to hold me tight,
And then I see you with her at night.
Finally, you start coming to the tree,
Just to say, you never loved me.

—Sanghamitra Ghosh

11. What Was I Thinking

The night before, I made you mad
I wasn’t appreciating, the love that I had
I came home so drunk, I was really quite late
I left you alone, sitting home there to wait

I was too self involved, I wasn’t using my head
Alcohol took over, its hunger I fed
I was drinking too often, I thought I was fine
Too blinded to realize, the problem was all mine

I was never mad at you, I was mad at myself
I let life pass me by, seemed it was on the back shelf
I blamed all of my problems, on everyone but me
Destined for ruins, and alone I would be

I made a bad choice, I should have been there with you
My greatest mistake, and there was nothing I could do
I tried to get sober that night, but made it worse than you know
I hated myself, cause I resorted to blow

That night I never came home, cause I felt too much shame
You’d be able to tell, and there was only me I could blame
I text you that night, to say tomorrow I would call
The next day with a hangover, I would for-get that all

I went through my next days, scared you’d be mad
Hiding ashamed, not thinking you were sad.
I forgot I had hurt you, I couldn’t remember last night
My words cut you deep, on the phone in our fight

You wanted to love me, to work through it all out
I didn’t know that, I was too scared you would shout
I gave it some time, to get my head straight
I took way too long, how long should you wait?

You had now left me, When I got my priorities in line
I wanted to marry you, but you were no longer mine
I cried and I lost it, how could I mess up so bad
this had all happened, cause I spent to much time being mad

I got over my issues, I finally see clear
I was drinking and hiding, I had too much fear
The old me is gone, but how could you know
I wish I still had you, how I wish that was so

—Michael Inthasky

12. Miles Away

I’m getting insane
Of the distance we have
How can we be together

Is there any way
For us to get closer
No calls nor letters
Just sadness and tears

When this all be end
This sorrow and pain
Time always keep us away
So hard to think this everyday

Wish I could dream of you
Every night when I’m asleep
For this is the only way
Only way for us to meet

— Rinalene

‘I Miss You’ Poems For Her

Her thoughts are constantly on your mind and you are missing her from the core. Share your feelings with her and let her know how lonely you feel without her.

13. Thinking About You

When I ate today at noon
All I could think about was you
Wishing you were here to do what you do
Wishing I could feed you with my spoon
Hoping someday I’ll see your smile again

I don’t know if I can take all this pain
Knowing that I am here and you are there
Thinking about the times we had and will not have

You are the best there ever was and will be
There is nothing to explain you, but lovely
Even when I was sad you made me happy

I just don’t know what to do
I just hope one day, I get to see you

— Gary R. Hess

14. Molly Girl

My thoughts of you are in my soul
my heart aches for your love
I yearn for your touch
my heart would skip a beat
just for a minute with you
I love you
always and forever
the days without you are cold
sad and dark
with you out of my life
life can’t get any worse
we were meant to be
but maybe it was only me
today life is a blur
a day of sorrow
I’m missing you
Don’t you understand
without you
is not where I want to be
don’t you see I’m here
can’t you just be here?
Don’t you care anymore?
without you life really isn’t there
do you still care?
or have you fallen
because I am tired of bawling
do you still care?

— Ayleashua Marchewitz

15. You Will Always Hold My Heart

I remember the first time we met.
It is something I will never forget.

The beauty that was shown in your face
Takes me to a very special place.

A warm feeling as you walked into the room.
Little did I know that I would never again see you; it came so soon.

Did I do something? Was it right or was it wrong?
It still haunts me like a very sad song.

I now have to live without you but know that you are oh so near.
It was such a tragedy, something I will always fear.

I have come to accept it now that you are not here with me.
I guess it was fate, something that was meant to be.

If it were my decision, you would still be here.
It seems that you have disappeared.

My heart has lost you; it hurts just to think
You were here one moment, then you were gone in a blink.

I miss your smile. I miss your face.
I miss your warm and tender embrace.

Who would have known how it would have ended? Who would have known?
I know that because of you, my heart will always be alone.

I am keeping my heart open, trying to be strong.
Loving a woman like you can never be wrong.

— Ralph P Quinonez

16. Pieces Of My Heart

One thing I know for sure
is that words could never take the place,
the place of how I feel.
I keep saying I’ll never love again,
but every time I see you,
I see your smile and feel your warm touch.
I fall so deep for you.
You say you love her and not me.
I let you go, but you keep coming back,
leaving my heart shredded
every time you walk away.
Holding on till the day
when you come back
with the missing pieces of my heart.

—Amanda-Lee Saucier

17. Voice Of My Aching Heart

I have always felt alone except when with you.
This is the voice of my aching heart and believe it’s true.
You showered your love on me for a very short duration.
I don’t know how I will handle this frustrating separation.
Your memories always flow in my mind and bloodstream.
Your sight immediately brings on my face a happiness gleam.
True love has the power to conquer all the inhibitions.
One enjoys his life journey under all conditions.
Voice of my aching heart will never go in vain.
Clouds of love in my stressed life will for sure once again rain.
Unfulfilled desires of life will then give me no more troubles,
Whether I achieve something great or just get reduced to rubble.


18. Missing You Like Crazy

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

19. A Thing For You

I know we never had our first date
things were difficult but we still stayed up late
talking about what we wanted to be
I wanted you, I thought you wanted me

I loved the way
you brushed the hair from my face
looked into my eyes
the way your lips taste

Friends come and go
sometimes they stay
Enemies have hurt us
is it a price we pay

Do they ache
like we do
are you grieving
like I do for you

I hoped, I wished
I loved, I missed
you held, you cared
you hugged and kissed

I hate the way you moved on
but only because I want the same
but that’s so hard to do now
When I have no one to blame

—Ellie Barlett

20. Affliction

Can you possibly fathom how it feels
To live without the unparalleled thing
That you really, truly, genuinely want,
That makes your heart throb and sing?

I know you presumptively haven’t,
Or you’d beyond doubt be just like me;
Closemouthed from the inside out,
Yearning, thriving, wanting just to see

That one person I really, truly, undoubtedly want,
The only one to end my endless, bliss less drought.
Passing over to me a illimitable sliver of happiness,
And then, on spur of moment, I’m free of all doubt.

At that very occasion, I think it’s all gratifying
When I’m floating buoyantly on thin air-
Then I’m plummeting groundward
When I realize they’re no longer there.

Do you realize how that feels?
To be a carapace, abandoned, and hollow,
Knowing nothing but to brace yourself
For the inevitable pain that soon follows.

Living without the sole thing on this great Earth
Heaven or Hell, that makes you whole and completes you
Is not a desirable life, believe me when I say,
The Emptiness is not something you wish to live through.

The forsaken, deceiving semblance slowly furnishes me
With outlandish animosity, hunger, and a strong desire
When my only prize in life, what I live for, is gone,
To burn everyone and everything with resentment as my fire.

Great Earth, Sky above, divine Heaven, and the depths of Hell
Bellow for me at once, each in attempt to gain me with lure.
I lament, I scream, I fall to my knees, and ruefully for my suffering,
For this terrible affliction, there is no cure.

— Jessica Williams

21. 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.


22. Why Me Why You

Why is it when I look in your eyes,
I see the love burning inside me.
Why is it when you hug me,
the world melts with us.

Why is it when you leave,
I can’t find myself.
Why is it when you say bye,
it seems like forever.

Why is it when the phone rings,
I answer just to hear if it’s your voice.
Why is it when you don’t call,
I wonder what you are doing.

Why is it that I can’t breath,
whenever I think about you.
Why is it that I can’t speak,
whenever I talk about you.

Why is it when I’m around you,
you want to walk away.
Why is it when I hug you,
you don’t feel the same.

Why is it when you look into my eyes,
you just see a girl looking back at you.
Why is it when you leave,
you leave to be with her.

Why is it when you say bye,
you say hello to her.
Why is it when my phone rings,
it’s not you.

Why is it when I call you,
you don’t answer.
Why is it when I ask what you think about me,
you say that I’m just cool.

Why me, why you,
I don’t know yet but I’m hoping you can find
the love I have for you and hope one day that love would turn into something more than what meets the eye.


23. I Miss You More Than I Say

I wish upon the glistening stars,
I pray night and day.
I’m sad that we’re so far apart,
That you’re so far away.

I try to heal a broken heart,
And yet there is no way.
And when it simply falls apart,
Hurts more than I could say,

I cry myself to sleep sometimes,
And yet I need no pity.
I need to fix my broken heart
Or all this pain is hitting

Forever, ever, ever on.
It’s truly you I miss.
Sometimes I could just close my eyes
And fantasize sweet bliss.

A single tear streaks down my face.
My feelings are revealed,
Though I had tried so very hard
To keep these things concealed.

I never wanted to move away.
I hope friendship truly stays.
Please don’t let this fall away.
I’ll just hold on another day.

You’ve stolen my heart, taken over my mind,
So please be sweet and please be kind.
Remember me, please, every day.
I miss you more than I can say.

— Emilia E. Alle

24. I Miss You

Do you ever think of me
As daylight turns to dusk?
And all the world is quieted
The stillness brings a hush

Do you ever think of days of fun and laughter?
And ponder memories sweet
And pause by the door of life
To long for the moment when we meet

Do you dry your eyes from tears that linger?
And gaze upon photographs of me
Are your arms empty from needing to embrace?
Would you travel from sea to shining sea?

Do you ever think of me
As daylight turns to dusk?
And all the world is quieted
The stillness brings a hush

—Delores R. Ward

25. Lost Before I Found You

When we first met, I was lost
Lost in the deep moonlight ocean
That I found in his eyes

When we first met, I was lost
Lost in the pale pink rose
That I found resting upon his cheek

When we first met, I was lost
Lost in the light brown bark of a tree
That I found on his skin

When we first met, I was lost
Lost in the pearls
That I found just underneath those perfect lips

When he left, I was lost
Lost in a whole new way

No more deep blue eyes
No more pink roses
No more perfect pearls

And when he left, I was lost
Lost in the sorrow
That I found in my heart

—Danielle Byrnes

26. 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


‘I Miss You’ Poems For Him

He loves you, and when you are away, he misses you like crazy. Now, when he’s away, it’s your turn to express how much you miss him. Tell him “I miss you” in a poetic style with any of these poems.

27. What I Miss

I miss how we used to be,
So vibrant, so honest, so wild and free.

I miss the way you would understand,
Listen carefully and be there when I needed a hand.

I miss our long, random talks at night,
Our private conversations,
Our silly little fights.

I miss the way you could read my mind,
Know what to say,
When words were hard to find.

I miss the way you could brighten my day,
Make me forget the mistakes,
Make the pain go away.

I miss how you made me laugh,
Hate how you made me cry,

Loved how you said you would always be there,
But once again, I forgot that everything you say is a lie.

—Thalia Jones

28. The Game

Let me tell you about a game I play
Where I close my eyes and fade away

I float away to a special place
Beyond the stars and moon and space

In this special place you see
There are only two people – just you and me

In this place, all is right
Nothing but love, and we never fight

In this place, there is no sadness
No cells, no courts, none of that madness

No rules to follow, no laws to break
No bars to hold us or separate

No one to tell us we can’t kiss or touch
I don’t just tell you “I love you” – I show you how much

But eventually the game must end
My eyes must open, and reality sets in

But someday soon – I’m not sure when
I will close my eyes and play my game again

— Susan Christensen

29. Without You

All these days and nights without you here,
It’s a little bit more than I can bear.

The days are cold and so very long.
I don’t know how much longer I can be strong.

My nights are so lonely and sad.
Sometimes I can’t help but get mad.

I see your face everywhere I look.
It breaks my heart that my great love is what they took.

Without you here it feels like the end.
I’m lost without you ’cause you were also my best friend.

I’ll be counting the days and nights till we’re together again.
Until then, it’s all my love that I send!

— Dawn

30. Without His Love

What has happened is never spoken,
And everything around me has been broken.
There’s no words, just silence.
Hate, but no violence.
Sadness, without tears.
Humans, without fears.

When will the ground break?
Where is the open gate?
Slowly, the darkness creeps,
But still, no one weeps.
All are withering.
Hearts are shriveling.

This world has grown cold.
There’s no one left to hold.
I fear that I, too, will join them soon
Just when the light fades from the moon.
My beloved has been turned into a dove,
And now I know what becomes of this world,
Without his love.

— Lizbeth Lopez

31. Still Thinking Of You

I ask myself why am I thinking of you so much.
I think about all the moments we shared together and the way we touched.
You know that this was hard for me,
but you decided not to see.
I know I’m still stuck in my past,
but I had a feeling that this was going to last.
I guess my heart was wrong,
Why couldn’t I live through it and not stay strong?
Thinking of you makes me feel this way.
“Why couldn’t I just stay?”
I ask myself that every day.
Hold on! I had a reason why.
Now that I think of it, I want to cry.
Still feeling you so much.
I still think of the moment when we touch.

— Lilmaris

32. Life Without You

I’m sad and feeling blue
Doing nothing but thinking of you.
I hope you can feel it too
’Cause I’m getting crazy; don’t know what to do.

You’re there and I’m here.
Year of not seeing each other,
The eagerness to see you goes stronger.
How long will I wait, another year or longer?

My heart cries when I see you on the screen,
For I cannot touch you or kiss you for real.
This really isn’t easy for me,
But I cannot do anything so I just cry and pray.

Praying every night you’ll come back again.
Hope God will hear my deep calling,
If that will happen I will surely be happy.

— Rinalene

33. Wrong Was Right All Wrong

She HATES him,
With all her heart and all her soul.

He was hopeless,
He couldn’t do anything right.

When she was in darkness, he offered her no light,
Instead he joined her.
When she was down, he didn’t lift her up,
Instead he joined her.
When she cried, he didn’t make her laugh,
Instead he joined her.
When she was wounded, he did not cure her,
Instead he joined her.

In the end she couldn’t take it,
She told him to leave,
For once he did the right thing…
He left.

Watching the flowers fall to the ground,
She realized her mistake,
His love, after all, wasn’t fake,
So she waited…and waited…

She LOVES him,
With all her heart and all her soul.

Looks like the things he did,
were right all along.

— Ariel

34. Please Close Your Eyes And Come With Me

Just for a moment or two……
Close your eyes and come with me,
Was it just a dream?
Can you see what I see?
Us two?
Were we really together?
It’s been a long time now,
Your face,
Your beautiful brown eyes,
Your long flowing dark hair,
The look,
That all consuming powerful look……….
Of love,
I remember,
Each time you looked into my eyes,
You took my breath away,
I can still see the sideways glance,
I noticed,
I always noticed you know,
Even before we got together,
We met halfway,
You were young,
I was old,
Age is just a number you said,
A number that didn’t hold out,
Now I understand…
I heard the song too,
“Can you still love me when you can’t see me any more?”
Yes, I can,
I still do,
I always will.

— Petergm

35. Call Me Back

You hear the ring, you know just what to say,
but then there’s no answer, and your confidence goes away.

Your eyes blink back tears, and you begin to doubt.
Nothing comes to mind, but this is what comes out…

“Hey, I know it’s late and you may not get this for a while,
but I was hoping you would be the one to maybe make me smile.

I know I’ve waited far too long to tell you what is true,
but now I’m here to tell you that baby, I love you.

I know this may not mean much coming from me now,
but I will make this up to you if you will just tell me how.

I know that you still love me. It’s written on your face,
but you’re so good at hiding it, it’s hard to find a trace.

Let me back inside your life. I swear I’ll make this right.
Call me back when you can. I love you baby, goodnight.”

— Haley Brown

36. My Lost Dreams

You looked into my heart and found my lost dream,
A very common one I guess it may seem.
No one else like you in my heart is the same,
Cuz I’ve really changed since in my life you came.
You told me that my fate rests in my hands,
To make life as best I can.
You took my hand and out of the shadows we ran.
With my back to the dark and my heart towards the light,
You told me to do what I thought was right.
Even though you promised that you’d always stay,
No matter how close you are it feels as though you’re miles away.
Now as I look back at the past,
I realize that time moves by way too fast.
The memory of our friendship I hold near,
How I wish you could still be here,
For you know me better than I know myself,
only you have ever seen me cry.
But now when I talk you just hear but don’t listen to what I have to say,
You just pull your heart away.
So not even to myself do I want to confess,
That as time goes by I don’t seem to like you less.

— Dulce K. L.

37. My Sweetest One

As I stand by my own I look upon another’s,
It tears my heart apart but I must fight,
Beautiful maze those eyes have become,
A place where I never find the exit nor do I look for it,
No I must fight,
Giving in to the emotional concoction is my weakness,
Portraying your beauty through words is all I can do,
Portraying my love through words is all I can do,
Love you from a distance is all I can do.

You have no idea the knife that stabs my chest every minute of every day,
My guilt rips my insides into oblivion,
My love sews my brokenness into singularity,
My cracked surfaced is almost see-through,
If you peered beneath you would see the destruction I have brought down on myself,

Portraying your divinity through words is all I can do,
Portraying my obsession through words is all I can do,
Love you from a distance is all I can do.

Continuing to be shattered glass is what I deserve,
Continuing to be polished sapphire is what you will be,
Look down upon me oh merciful One and bring me peace,
End my journey through the hell of a heart torn in half,
No, let me continue to fall,
It is what I have summoned for myself,
Portraying your gravity through words is all I can do,
Portraying my sorrow through words is all I can do,
Love you from a distance is all I can do.

Dreaming will have to do for now my sweetest one,
Dreaming may have to do for all of eternity,
Dreaming may be my only hope for fullness,

— Toby St John

Short ‘I Miss You’ Poems

Keep reading for a few short and romantic poems to tell your partner, “I miss you.”

38. Missing You

Missing you is like a day without light
or a rose without petals.

Every time I think of you
My days grow shorter,
My heart gets weaker,
and my love grows stronger.

I had a dream that everything was perfect,
But then I realized nothing is the same.

Missing you is like a day without light
or a rose without petals.

— Jaira N Biel

39. Without You

Without you, days seem endless.
Without you, my nights are lonely.
Everything seems so empty.
Only with you I know I will be fine.
Moments with you are frozen in time.
When I’m with you,
I feel that nothing in the world can tear us apart.
I feel that when I’m without I get left with a broken heart.
When I’m with you, I feel that I will love you forever.
Without you, nothing lasts forever.

— Daniel X. Wofford

40. My Everything

You’re my love, my life,
The air that I breathe.
You’re my soul, my happiness,
The all that I need.

You’re my light, my dark,
The stars in the sky.
You’re my ups, my downs,
The reason I try.

You’re my strength, my weakness,
The love from the start.
You’re my heartache, my pain,
The beat of my heart

You’re my tears, my joy,
The love that you bring.
You’re my world, my galaxy,
You’re my everything.

—Dean Coombes

41. Oh! I Miss You!

How I miss the high of you
How you fill the entire room
How you make my heart race
How I melt, undeniably,
Into you

— Caroline White

42. Something Like A Memory

Raindrops on window panes
Stars at night that are just airplanes
Sparks of light out in the distance
Reminding me of the space between us
Jaded pieces keeping us together
Like trying to catch droplets in stormy weather

Waiting for the final fall though
Feeling like tides pulling me away from you
Constant mistakes
Relived retakes
Lying awake at night
Because waking from dreams doesn’t feel right
No matter what I do
In my dreams I always come back to you

— Katenewt

43. Faded Love

You were my angel
From heaven you fell right into my heart
But now that your gone, I’m lost with out you
Where do I start?
My heart has been broken,
My feelings shattered
I will never feel the same with any other woman,
I’m far from flattered
I’m missing you more than ever,
You gave my heart a reason to beat
Love is just a friendship on fire,
But we finally lost the heat
I’m missing you to this day,
But you probably don’t feel the same
Now I’m sitting here wondering if you still remember my name

— Dashun Wingfield

44. Time

Although you are so far away
You’re always in my thoughts
I understand the circumstance
Is dealt with by the courts.

Bars will not stop me thinking
Of the bloke I knew before
Circumstance will not dictate
And neither will the law.

I miss the freedom that we shared
I miss your carefree laugh
But hopefully the lessons learned
Will take another path.

So keep hopes high and don’t forget
I’ll always be around
I’ll always be that special one
Who helps you when you’re down.

— Lih

45. Undone

We were so tight at first,
Is our string becoming undone?
Are you mad at me? Or is this all just for fun?
I know this may sound corny,
but it is the truth,
the longer you stay away from me,
the more I yearn for you,
Please, talk to me, tell me what’s up,
I don’t know what happened,
to everything between us.

— Corinne

46. Never Say Goodbye

You’ll never really know how much you meant to me
My heart will be with you until the end just wait and see

I feel far from what would seem close
And close to what would seem far

When I die I don’t want you to cry
Just keep your head up high
and your dreams to the sky.

— Alex Angeles

47. Take Back

We were always together,
you plus me equals forever
Now, all I have are pictures of the past.
When you care about someone very much,
and they just fade away memories

I can’t take back the cries.
I can’t take back the smiles.
I can’t take back good times.
And I really don’t know what to do,
I really miss you.

All our talks,
all our walks,
all our good jokes.
And now, there’s no one to talk to.
And I really don’t know what to do.
I really miss you…

— Melissa Rose B. Bulaong

48. Missing You Every Morning

I Miss You!
Every morning I wake up
Realizing you’re really far away
So I put on my make up
And pray for a good day.

I know God’s watching
And he’ll lead me back to you
I just have to keep living
So he can see me through.

Although you’re not close
And many miles away
I’ll still love you
Even after today.

I really miss you dearly
And really wish I was there
But despite of not having you here
At least I still have air.

– Bailey

49. I Miss You

I Miss Your Laugh
I Miss Your Smile,
I Haven’t Seen You For Awhile.
I Miss Your Eyes;
I Miss Your Lips.
I Miss The Touch Of Your Fingertips
I Miss All The Things We Use To Do.
But Most Of All I Just Miss You….

— Janet Cowell

50. Memories of Love

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

51. 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

52. When I’m Missing You

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

53. You Are Missing From Me

I wish I could be where you are,
To feel the warmth of your embrace,
“Tu me manques my darling!” Is all that I can say.

The snow it drifts upon me,
With shards of memories,
I long to kiss your lips,
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…

— Adam Riley

54. I Miss You Every Morning

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.

— Traci Crawford

55. Your Voice

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
