Near

I know you left me,
But you're still around,
How can it be,
When you're in the ground.

I loved you more than anyone,
And you I really miss,
The time we had is done,
It ended without a kiss.

Once I thought I felt you touch,
Your cold hand on my face,
The warmth is what I miss so much,
I wish you weren't in that place.

I couldn't feel you anymore,
Since that first night,
You were standing in the door,
But something wasn't right.

I already knew I lost you,
Though you were right in front of me,
There was nothing I could do,
What happened was meant to be.

You will always be in my heart,
Your memory will always remain,
They can never tear that apart,
One day we will be together again.

    Hi Kelly, this is another fine write from you. Your words play at the heart strings and play the sad music of the heart. \Although those we Love must leave us we know they are always near. All who have touched your heart are always near. Love keeps us all connected Kelly. You put a lot of thought and feeling into this piece. This can easily be seen as one reads. You tug gently at the heart strings. Remember, we only truly lose someone if we forget them. Compliments of the season my friend..MIKE.

    Hello, Kelly your poem has a sadness. I feel for you and your loss. it's hard to face a world, when things are not left the right way... you will be together at the end.. your heart knows it . ~SKAT~

    Kelly, it is a heartfelt poem.. This reminds me a song.. from Katy Perry. (the one that got away) it's a sad song about her boyfriend passing... and he's always in her heart... in another life time.. ..i believe they are waiting... I thought of writing a poem like this.. thanks for the kind comment... adding this one to my favorite poems.. I hope it's only a poem.. enjoyed it... Linda
