You Meant The World To Me

You Meant The World To Me

A Poem by Eddie Phillips

I spoke with a man that lost his wife and this poem came out of me.


On days like this, you would say you loved me.
I can still hear your voice coming down the hall.
I jump every time the phone rings. I still anticipate your calls.
Five years you fought your battle before the Lord took you home.
I am left here missing my angel and wondering where I belong.
I kept my promise. I loved you to the end as the words said.
However, that young lover never imagined being alone in our bed.
I wake up to your whispers; I turn my head to realize I am alone.
I get only that brief second to feel your presence before your gone.
I love you were the words that I said just before you left.
I don't know if you heard as I kissed you and silently wept.
Tonight I am hoping that you hear me.
On our anniversary I pray God allows you to see.
I want you to see and hear me say that I love you.
Baby, you meant the whole world to me.

It's so beautiful but very sad..It's called true love probably..I too agree that feelings never change with time, distance that we left..a very genuine write that could touch the heart. My first visit to your page and I like it so much

Praying over another's loss or pandering to a general sentiment?

I would speculate that you made this up for affect... but, that would be rude and presumptive (as if no one has seen this shtick before).
