i found that this poem not only touched the heart but the soul because i no at one period of time everyone has lost someone nearest and dearest to them. my regards to you and i hope you live on the way she would like you to do so . ps i lost my father when i waz only 2 and right now he inspires me to write poetry and im 16 years old right now. pleeze use poetry as your other voice to express your inner most thoughts and desires dont be afraid of the pen and give it the blood it needs to feel the words. your admirer gretchen aka passion

This poem is great. It really touched me in so many ways. It reminds me of me and my boyfriend. We live in two different states, 5 hours apart. So we never get to see eachother. This poem explains exactly how we both feel about each other. I will be going to where he lives this May and hopefully moving there with him and his three children. I Love him so much and and it kills us both being so far apart. Again this is a great poem. Keep up the good work! :-)

Velicia
This is one of the most beautiful poems I have read in a long time. I loved it. It said everything I was feeling, but couldnt put into words.
Kimberly
If ever there was a poem that said exactly what I was feeling about a love that was so far away from me then this would be it. I appreciate the how sincerely honest this poem is. I think it explains exactly what one is feeling when they are missing someone. Great job!
Leah
beautifully written, if any of us has ever had a love leave for even a little while, I'm sure they have felt this way I know I have. It is a song that our hearts sing when or love has left us longing.
Terion
I was just searching for a 'missing you' poem and clicked on two links and yours were the 2nd one. I have to say it was right on que. From beginning to end is what I would've love to creatively put in words for the guy I'm mailing this to. But either way, all that matters is that he knows how I feel and although I didn't write, I hope he takes & believes it just the same. Beautiful poem and I hope your fiancee' enjoyed it just as much as I. Thanks.
adena

Megan

Normaly i wanted to write an poem than i get the page of you. thx for this poem iam sure u have ur reason why u wrote it. i wish nobody a situation like i have of missing. its sooo hard.
brittany
THIS POEM WAS WONDERFUL, IT BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES BECAUSE I CAN RELATE TO IT . WHILE READING MISSING YOU IT FELT AS THOUGH I HAD WRITTEN IT MY SELF I AM RIGHT NOW IN A VERY SIMILIAR SPOT BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN TORN AWAY FROM THE MAN I LOVE BUT, HOPEFULLY NOT FOR LONG ANDAS YOUR POEM SAYS UNTIL I SEE HIS SMILE AND GET TO TOUCH HIM AGAIN I WILL BE THINKING OF HIM. TO WRAP IT UP I JUST WANTED TO SAY I LOVED THIS POEM.
Lacey
Today is the 1 year mark for my boy friend and I. He is currently on a mission for my church which lasts 2 years. He has been gone for 2 months now and I miss him terribly. I read this poem and I could relate and I just wanted to say thank you to the author.
bekki
i know what it feels like been apart from a loved one as my fiance is currently in prison serving a 7 year sentence. everything in the poem was true about how a person can feel been separated from their other half. this was a pleasure to read and i really really enjoyed it! lets have more poems like this in the future! thank u.

It is everything I feel for my lost love and I would love to tell him if he would only talk to me. He has left me and will not even talk to me ever again for the harsh words I said to him as he was leaving and now I long to be with him forever.
Tom
this poem touched me becuase my girlfriend and i have been seperated for five months now. just the other night we talked and decided that we really were meant to be. the words used in this poem are the same words that i feel . thank you for reading my mind.

It was a good poem ie tell how you love someone.
ANGELA
YOU REALLY SAID IT LIKE IT WAS I REALLY DID LIKE YOUR POEM
Martha
I have never read a poem quite like that before. In my opinion it voices everything that one person could possibly want to express towards a loved one that they are missing! It was possibly the sweetest poem I've ever read!
Kaitlin
I loved this poem, because recently, my boyfriend Nate has gone to Canada for a few months and I miss him so much because I havent spent much time apart since we've been together.
Arthur
This poem is amazing. Just reading it you can tell that the author is truely lonely. Being in the military and stationed overseas i couldn't agree more with the message that this poem portrays. Thank you for sharing your poem with everyone. and i hope everything works out when your fiance gets there
Jaime
I loved this poem. I am only 13 but i found someone i want to spend the rest of my life with. I live in oklahoma but i'm moving to colorado in one week nand my heart is broken causer i can only see his face every 4 months. and this is how i will feel when i leave like if i could just touch his finger that would be enough cause i love him.
Steven
This is a fantastic poem! 10/10. It has made me miss my Girlfriend even more then I thought I was already was. I haven't seen or had contact with here since Tuesday (today being Friday) and won't be until tomorrow. All of the lines have strong connections with the two of us. I intend on reading it out to her tomorrow night when I join back up with her. I know she'll melt. I also know it's perfect for the two of us to think about how much we mean to each other! Thank you!
Taina
This Poem Hit Real Close To Home About How I Feel. As My Fiancee Is Not Able To Be With Me Right Now For Personal Reasons! This Poem Is EXCELLENT! Thanks For Sharing this, Would Like To see More Of His Work:-)
Amy
This poem has special meaning for me. I am currently involved in a long distance relationship, and we are also engaged, just as the author when he wrote this poem. We've had times when we feel like it is all hopeless, and would never work out. To me, this poem says exactly what I couldn't say, and gives me one more reason to hang in there, and believe that my fiancee and I will be together in the end.
Kim
I love this poem. I like this guy so much but he has a gf already.
Amber

amanda
i think u did such a grate job on this poem keep up the good work cant wait to see more work like this one i have just read
Lori
This poen touched me more than I can say. My tears fell like slow rain drops, not the slobering cry, but that of a cry with meaning that I can't explain. Although your explaination of the meaning of this poem to you, is the total opposite for me. (You are waiting on the one you love to join you, I am mourning the loss of one. ) I just recently (about 3 months ago) went through a breakupof a relationship, with a man that is still my best friend. We had issues that caused this, although I beleive they can be worked through eventually. We still have almost daily contact and he is wonderful to my 15 & 16 year old daughters. (He loves them like his own) I had to comment because there has never been a poem that has touched me in the way that this one has. Beautiful writing and I THANK YOU!
White Rose
First time I've read this poem was two years and seven months ago, that was the first time I've met the love of my life. The poem itself does symbolize a BEAUTIFUL LOVE which created by two people who are truly in love to one another. This poem inspires broken hearted people, and of course the ones who aren't, to keep falling in love until they find the right person for them. Thank you for this poem, it does explain the beauty of love. Through this poem, I really want my sweetie to know, I'm his forever and I love him always and forever. Thank you!
Krystina
I loved your poem! My heart aches while I am away from my love. and you seemed to put my feelings into words that I could never find. It was awesome! Thanks!
John
Thank you all for your comments! WOW I just got an email in on this poem and didn't know all these comments were on here. When the email comes in it doesn't show the comments. I didn't realize you had to click on the link to get to it. HEHE Now I know how to get here, the computer whiz that I am. John Seabrook
Jessica
That poem is great. it brings tears in my eyes.
Nigel
I really loved the the emotions and thoughts expressed in these beautiful words. They very much struck a chord with my own circumstances - a difficult situation where the woman I love so very much, and who loves me, isn't yet free to be with me. I hope and pray that this will change in 2004. Until then "Keep the faith baby!"
Audra

I think this poem is 1 of the best I have read in a while coming from a guy & his true feelings of 1 that he loves so much. If alot of guys where like this 1 as I am a guy as well would be such a better place for us rare guys who get treated & measured up to other guys. Well done poem though & hope you a great marriage.

Bill
I really enjoy reading your poem, and Im sending it to my American wife who is currently teaching in Texas. I live in Brazil, Im a Brazilian national and Itried to convey my feelings through poetry to my wife. Poetry is something so personal, and so culture interlaced and dependent, that my Portuguese poetry did not find my wives heart. I hope that your poetry will be better understood by her. Bill
