In Search Of You (Poem)

via Pinterest

 

*This is my last entry for the Write28Days Challenge. THANK YOU so much for following, reading and commenting! 

 

I can feel your touches

through the gentle breeze

the warmth of them

as my skin radiates in the sun

 

The mist hides your face

or perhaps it is the tears

that fall for you

 

This ache in my chest

unrelenting

 

My eyes linger on the brown earth

where there were once two shadows

wholly entwined

but now there is one

 

My love, oh my love

how my eyes have searched the heavens

just for a glimpse

of you

 

One more time

one more

 

 

(I dedicate this poem to my first husband, Aaron, though he may be gone over twenty years now, I still miss him.  God rest his soul)

  1. So beautiful Carrie Ann. Your husband was a lucky man. It’ important to remember and even miss our loved ones. Writing about them brings us so much joy and helps us grieve. The sadness is part of the process, but also a component of love, I think.
    Have a nice day.
    Congratulations on completing the #28 days challenge.
