I Miss You Poems

Our lives are so busy and sometimes we live so far from our families. We miss the relationships with our families and often we do not even share important life events with them. We need to move back towards our families. If not in actual distance then at least we must move closer in our hearts. We live in a time where there are unprecedented communication possibilities. No one will ever love us unconditionally like our family can. We'd be fools not to take advantage of this opportunity.

  1. 1. Clutches

    • By Hunter J. Fowler
    • Published by Family Friend Poems July 2016 with permission of the Author.

    There's a little boy standing by the fence with a flag in his hand.
    He's sad and confused; he doesn't understand.
    He watches his daddy turn and head up on the bus.
    He watches him go and doesn't even fuss.

    Listening to crickets and watching fireflies light.

    I often wonder if you'd make them proud, would you be quiet or would you be loud?
    I often wonder if you'd be class clown, bring someone up if they were down.
    I often wonder if you'd be bright, be the type who is always right.
