Missing You

You filled my lungs, When I needed oxygen, You were my energy, Boosted me up like Supligen, You were my sky-scraper, Not just a tent, You were my mortgage, Not just the rent, You were my mountain, And we stood tall, We played lifes' music, You kept me glad, Now your flesh has fallen, But you are next to God, Right to the end, You were my best friend, In my heart, until we meet again....

So lovely. To me it seems easier to write poetry about lost love ones. I guess it's because we are always thinking about the one we lost.

I understand the feeling when you miss the person and knowing that he's no more with you .what is more painful when that person is your best friend or anyone close to your heart . well ,it's a great poem .I like it.

direct lines clear, dedicated ... I read the title and thought I'd find melancholy .. But you managed to get SURP [rionzi with your vision optimistic, even in times of separation.
