All I Think of Is You

in my waking hours
I see your face in the clouds 
I hear your voice on the wind
at night, you're my dreams
your scent still on my pillow
when will this heart of mine mend? 

By Rhonda Johnson-Saunders, February 21, 2012

Forgive me, Rhonda. Your beautiful poem reminds me so much of my late husband that it brought tears to my eyes. I still feel his presence after all these years. Surely a winner in Russell's wonderful contest. Love, Carolyn

Rhonda, good luck in the contest. I started 2 feel a bit of guilt as I read your poem. I know this poem was intended for your love one. Half of all your lines, remind me of both my mothers step & biological. I have paid no visit to either one. (SHAME ON ME), Every waking hour, I feel the void. Sad I have to miss my special someones that way. I face the clouds and hope my mum, is looking at me. I also long 2 hear her voice in the wind. My other mother is lost to alzheimer. thinking always~pd

Rhonda, this is a lovely worded poem. However, a sedoka poem consists of only six lines, and you display seven here.

Wow, I know a sedoka is six lines. I guess I got carried away. Thanks Robert for pointing out my extra line. I'll rethink the poem.
