Weekly Poem: Poem 1

As I remember


you are there.


As I search for 


your name is there.


As I seek to find


your shadow has been cast away


As I sit waiting for


the wind is all who greets me


As I call your name,


do not respond, but the leaves rattle.


As the tears roll down my cheeks,


am soothed by the birds’ songs


I am moved with awe as

watch the clouds tell a story.


When you left, 


feared I would forget.


Now that you are gone, I am reminded of


everywhere I look.



are not gone.



live here.

    I started writing poems when my grandfather died. It was a hard time in my life because I loved him. I stopped writing them but I still have a few. HERE I one that I liked (its a little sad thou). I like yours thou, it has a Robert Frost quality to it. Hoping to see more 🙂

      LOL you guys, I think it was more pointed towards death. The person is “GONE”, I could be wrong but I do not believe it has anything to do with love. You may be asking what about the “you love here” part, well you live in are hearts. I hope I am right, otherwise I have misunderstood the meaning of the poem. I guess the only way to know is to wait fro Lindsey reply’s.

        That one part should say “you live here” not love here, typo. (You have to hate netbook keyboards)

        Ok then, it is about death. I thought it was because every poem (well most of them) I have read that is about death has a subtle rhyming to it, but still not every sentence is rhyming. Also its quite deep for a made up death. When I wrote poetry (again don’t do it anymore brings up bad memory’s) I would have to think just about the subject I was writing about. So are all your weekly poems going to be posted on Friday or just when they come to mind ?

    • Dylan says:

      Ok a little hint, When something comes to mind write a note about it. Thats what I have to do for my made my day things. Then you will remember to write it, most of my made my day things made my day 1-4 days ago. SO if you have a poem in your head just write it down so you don’t forget, it makes it a lot easier to keep up with deadlines.
