My World Is So Empty...
Author: Terrie*


my world is so empty
as my heart feels it too
I reach over to your side of the bed
to hold you

then I begin to realize
there's no more you
I stand up by the dresser
and I pick up our wedding picture
and the first letter you wrote

telling me how much you miss me
and your love is beyond the moon
and not to worry
because I will be in your arms very soon

I get up and look in the closet
I see your belongings
neatly packed away

I see a lonely tie
I burst out and cry
I remember the many times
so patiently
you have tried to teach me
how to tie than darn thing
and still couldn't quite get it right

your scent remains in my memory
a place I keep you
safely tucked away
when I open my eyes
you become a shadow

I miss you ,
I want you,
I need you so bad
your loving touch
I miss so much

I peek in the shower
reminiscing those lovely mornings
perky you singing
wearing only a towel
wrapped around your waste

while I stand at the doorway
admiring you ,
as you trim your moustache
and add wax to the ends
forming a handle bar
you turn to me with a grin
and ask me to shave you
and that I always did
as it always landed us snuggly in bed

I see a cloudy vision
of your loving face
in the mirror staring at me
with that same look in your eye
the look of passion
I respected so much

I go back to bed
with your pen in my hand

as I hold you both tightly
and bring you alive
forever in my dreams
with each word that I write

Thanks Terrie, for Memory Jogger .

Terrie is too much, almost. Thanks for another wonderful poem stirring my mind and soul...remembering my first love who as a widow, tracked me down 40 years later, and she wasn't any longer the petite 16 year old always in my mind. Yet her smile hadn't changed. Enjoy your poems very much...happy day after Christmas. Jerry
