I wish upon a star tonight to be where you are.
When you passed from this life you left a scar.

I remember kneeling by your bed each night as you slept.
You were sleeping like an angel but did not wake so I wept.

I would love to be where you are even if it would be for just a while.
There is an ache in my heart to see your blue eyes with your smile.

My love and devotion to you have always been forever strong.
I am still here stuck in this life, but I hope it will not be long.

I love you with all my heart and you were my life’s song.
I have missed you so much baby since you have been gone.

I look up to the sky tonight knowing you are far.
I am singing you an old love song with your guitar.

There are tears in my voice crackling as I sing your song.
I love you more, and I hope it's not going to be too long.

This poem is very well written. The loss of a love one is so very hard. May God grant you the peace and comfort you so greatly deserved.

This is very touching, Ed. She is gone, but her memory is vivid, and she is truly missed. ~ Take care my friend. // paul

A 7 for this well-penned poem. Your words "flew" off the page with heart-felt determined passion! Sorry for your lost if this is true. I just lost a loved one myself. Take care.

Poignantly beautiful. Would be hard for the reader not to be touched. I am. This could be a great lyric for a song.
