How I Wish You Were Here With Me Now [poem]

How I wish you were here with me now -
The moon is a promise I can keep forever;
The wind is a memory I’ll not soon forget:
The feel of it on my skin awakens moments
That are long since gone,
But your face remains imprinted in my mind’s eye.

How I wish you were here with me now -
I lay on a bed of grass watching the endless parade of clouds
I wonder where you are now, if you’re watching the same sky.
I dream of you every night, and sometimes
I even wake up calling out your name,
But you are never there to answer me.

How I wish you were here with me now -
The days grow shorter, leaving me less light;
I begin to long for sun again, to crave its warmth once more.
The moon is a heavy weight I carry in my heart;
I am bowed down, too, by the winds of your absence,
But I grow sick of darkness, wondering how I still can wish

You were here with me now.

Ana, that is such a beautiful poem. Really resonated deeply. Thank you for sharing it with the Universe.

I loved how you've captured the emotion, but without it being 'emotional' you know? Beautiful, beautiful words.

Thank you.

Love and sunshine from li'l old New Zealand
