So last year, I wrote this poem in reference to the passing away of a friend of mine in 2019. I never did anything with the poem and stumbled upon it today while working on another task and realized how much I actually did want to share it here on my blog. I know after my last blog post I want to bring into 2021 the process of continuing my healing, but also want to share something with you all that I’m sure you can relate to if you’ve ever lost a loved one and are still grieving that loss today. Because loosing a loved one is never an easy grief to deal with, I feel like this poem will resonate strongly with people and should be shared so others know they aren’t alone. So without further introduction, here is a poem I’ve written titled “Missing You”:
A friend that cannot be replaced.
A missing presence
That cannot be ignored.
A voice I can no longer hear
When I need someone to calm my fears.
Almost a year has passed
Since you left my life involuntarily.
But I miss you just as much now
As I did before.
Your friendship meant the world to me,
More than you’ll ever know.
Has opened a void that can’t be erased.
Has left my heart broken,
Drying off my tears.
But I know you would want nothing more
Then for me to live on and be happy.
So for you, my dear friend,
I live on with you in my memory.
So while I’m missing you,
I also know I’ll see you again one day soon.
So this poem isn’t me saying goodbye,
But me telling you, I’ll see you again soon.
