I miss her

i miss her by anelephantcant

i miss her by anelephantcant


I miss her in the morning
slipping quietly from our bed
I miss her gentle touches
and the tender words she said

I miss her in the evening
when we’d relax and watch TV
I miss the pain I often felt
which she’d kiss away for me

I miss her in the night time
when I am cold and on my own
and all her warm affection
I miss now she is gone

I miss her in the winter
when the sky is overcast
snowflakes tumble to the ground
to hide the broken past

I miss her in my faint heart
which weeps forever in the dark
standing bare in solitude
a tree in an empty park

I miss her in the knowledge
she left because I am so flawed
alone now like a pebble
on a lonely beach untrod

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/

    Beautiful images throughout but I find this one especially desolate and moving:
    standing bare in solitude
    a tree in an empty park
    And I love the reading.
