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.
