Missing You Poems

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. The Ole Porch Swing

    Loving And Losing A Grandmother

    Swinging on the porch swing early in the night,
    Listening to crickets and watching fireflies light.
    I loved to sit beside her and listen to her sing.
    We could sit for hours on the ole porch swing.

  11. I Miss My Mother

    I miss your voice that used to softly sing my special lullaby.
    I miss your hands that used to hold me when I was scared.
    I miss your eyes that would bring me to ease each time I stared into them.
    I miss your nicknames you gave me when I would act bad.
