Ghost

I can hear you,
I know you're there,
You can hear me too,
In this home we share.

Are you someone I knew,
Someone from the past,
Can it really be true,
When had I seen you last.

Or did you live here,
A long time ago,
You, I do not fear,
This I hope you know.

Did you just pass away,
Like most people do,
Why do you stay,
Was life taken from you.

Was your life so tragic,
That your spirit will remain,
Just like a trick of magic,
Your form you can regain.

You might watch me at night,
But I never have seen you,
Will I recognize the sight,
As a face that I once knew.

    Hi Kelly, Had a conversation with a ghost once, saw her, talked with her. I'll always believe I did anyway. Questions, questions, they always bring questions. If they answered them they would never be believed. I really like this one, your writing on something most people wont even try to believe. You wrote it well. The piece keeps its flow throughout and the rhyme keeps its flow. You keep the interest throught the piece. Excellent. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Hi Mike, I've never had a conversation with a ghost, but I have had paranormal experiences that made me a believer. About 10 years ago, I lived in an old farmhouse and I would see these dark shadowy figures quite often. Several times I heard voices and odd noises that were unexplainable. So, I am a true believer in ghosts! Thank you for the wonderful comments, my friend. I'm glad you enjoyed this poem! :)
