A Poem by Chris Micha

I will miss you, always.




Photo: I lost my idle today. I'm pretty short on words and my heart aches in so many ways today.

You can fly now
With the other heroes
and angels
Let your beautiful wings soar 
Above us
Wrap them around me as you always did
So that I may ride with you
As you carry me
To love higher
As you always taught me to do
I will miss you more than you'll ever know
I love you more than I could ever show
I will carry you in mind and heart
Till I see you again
You'll never be gone
You'll never be gone...Mawmaw!


I sat on your porch looking out at your garden as dawn approached

Each flower carried with it a memory...a tear...a smile

I'm sorry I wasn't here to hold your hand as you left

All I ever wanted was to be a star in your eyes

To shine bright for you and over you

Now you are shining over me

Watching me




Carry on

As you're watching over me

I will shine bright for you down here

We can be stars together in our linked worlds

We will hold hands through our soul's connections

We planted a flower long long ago in each other's hearts

You sit on Heaven's porch watching your garden as dawn approaches.

Hourglass (love the title) - Sweet, touching and heartfelt piece. A poem about someone who passed away with hope that even if the two are far apart, they knew that they still have the connection.

"I will shine bright for you down here

We can be stars together in our linked worlds"

Excellent work!

Such a heart-wrenching poem. It had my eyes water.

I admire the form you put your poem in. Made it fill with emotion even more.

I'm very sorry for your loss.

And forgive me friend. For I am so late.

...This deserved an early review.

Thank you for posting.

To sum me up is pretty easy. I love writing because it's therapy for my wayward soul. Although, I am by no means any good at it, I still put myself out there. I use to write when I was younger but gav.. more..
