Every Morning And Every Night

A Poem by Jeffrey Gershom

Remembering the past and not afraid of letting go.

Every Morning And Every Night
by
Jeffrey Gershom

I walk through the city and
hear voices, some young…some old.
They laugh…they argue…they cry,
every morning and every night.
 
I walk through the city and
see people going to and fro.
They hurry…they turn…they stop,
every morning and every night.

I walk through the city and
concentrate to what I care about.
I breathe smooth…I breathe soft…I breathe quietly,
every morning and every night.

I walk through the city and
place one foot in front of the other.
I try to pace my life like my walk,
every morning and every night.

I walk through the city and
remember being happy and laughing.
Memories that slowly fade, day by day,
every morning and every night.

I walk through the city and
see your face and places we were at.
The pain still strong and resonant,
every morning and every night.

I walk through the city and
tell myself it was just a bad dream.
Your eyes fading as I say goodbye,
every morning and every night.

I walk through the city and
dream of a new beginning…new start.
To smile again and never look back,
every morning and every night.

this is a beautiful poem about about a lover who had gone...love the meter of the poem with the repeat of "every morning and every night" ..it expresses the emotions strongly yet gently...with resolve at the end of a new hope and dream of starting again. very poignant....thank you
