Your Love Goes With Me

© more by Liz Newman

Published by Family Friend Poems August 19, 2021

Your love
Goes with me
Today and every day.

I feel it
When I’m listening
To the songs the trees make
Or the music we listened to
On sunny summer days.

I feel it
When I look at
Old photos of you.
I have your same eyes
And so much
Of the same outlook as you.

I feel it
When your old ring
Clangs against my heart,
Hanging from a chain
That I wear every day
And never take apart.

I feel it
When a familiar scent
Mixes with my memories
Of you,
The cologne on your clothes
And the way the smell
Shocks my senses anew.

I feel it
When I eat your
Favorite food,
Perch dinners
Or Payday candy bars,
All the things you were into.

I feel it everywhere
I feel it in everything.

It trickles into my days
In a million little ways.
Your love will never be lost,
It comforts and persists
And it stays.

Your love gives me strength.
Your love makes me brave.

Your love
Goes with me
Today and every day.
