Hello again! Here is installment 4 of my new Poetry Tuesday feature. There will be a special post tomorrow as well, look forward to it!
I wrote this poem somewhere near 15 years ago when I as dating my wife. This one is a little scary to put out because it is more personal than ones in the past.
I would love some feedback from anyone, my comment section is not being used at all. Is there a problem with leaving a comment? I haven’t noticed anything wrong but….Please let me know if there is an issue. I don’t moderate comments (on purpose) but I will delete spam in a heartbeat!
Thanks for everyone who continues to come by and visit my site, I really appreciate the readership and knowing that my words are not just stuck in my head or my computer anymore. Enjoy the poem

Midnight approaches and awake I lie,
Without my love, my hear wants to die.
She is so far away, I wish she were here,
But soon comes the time when she will be near.
I feel pain at our parting, yet my love flows so strong,
Much like the lyrics in an old Chicago song.
Without her love my life has no rhyme,
I can’t wait for the future when she will be mine.
I yearn for her voice, I long for her tender touch,
Oh how I miss her so very much!
She is my love, my heart, my life,
I know she will be mine through all trouble and strife.
Yet here I lie, longing for her,
She invokes feelings no other can stir.
I wait and I miss that sweet love of mine,
I will love her intently ’till the end of time!
Yet for now, I lie awake and dream…..
I think next week I will feature something from my Grandpa…he was a major cause of me starting to write poetry.
Thanks for reading!
