This is a poem for someone very special who isn't with me anymore. I miss them more than anything and I wrote this poem and another one to help me deal with it. Constructive criticism is welcome.
I thank the heavens that I got your eyes,
A constant reminder of you set in your face,
I think of you and the pain starts to rise,
And then I remember your warm embrace.
How you used to kiss me goodnight before I went to bed,
Your stubbly cheek scratching against mine,
"Good night, love, sweet dreams" you said,
I felt safe and warm and everything was fine.
How you used to flick all the channels every night,
And irritate everyone else in the room,
Thought you'd always be there, always be alright,
Unbeknownst to me, the darkness loomed.
It swallowed you up in the blink of an eye,
Now you're out of my sight, but not out of my mind.
