I Miss You

I fondly reminisce . . . and I miss you, dear brother – carrot top – with soul so sweet. It won’t be long when I’ll see you anew. I’m longing to embrace you when we meet. Dear brother – carrot-top – with soul so sweet; dear father, and my friends beyond the veil; I’m longing to embrace you when we meet. We were so close. Be first there, brother Dale! Dear father and my friends beyond the veil, it won’t be long when I see you anew. We were so close; be first there, brother Dale. I fondly reminisce. . . and I miss you!

Beautiful and heartwarming poetry. I'm sure Dale will be first in line to greet you with a big hug when you arrive. I like the inner rhyme of miss with reminisce. GL in the pantoum contest ~ John

Andrea, 'dear father, and my friends beyond the veil;..,we listen for them in the breeze and sometimes catch a glimpse..in our own kids. Very nice poem, so glad I didn't miss it. -Richard

Well firstly -- lovely poetry! And second: as always...your poetry gives me cause to consider; has a distinct "Chinese" feel to it all, Andrea. I shall take quite a bit out of this. My very best regards - cheers! :) john
