Will You Miss Me?


When I am long in my eternal repose

Will you still miss me?

When the leaves dash against your window, unaccountably

Will you pause?

When the clouds blanket the sun, though a shadow passes over

Will you wonder?

When a cold spot lingers near your bed in the heat of summer

Will you shiver, just a bit?

When a favorite book flutters from my desk to the floor

Will you simply turn away?

When from the corner of your eye, you glimpse a movement

Will you deny, it might have been I?

  1. How lovely to read your poem! I just dedicated my recent post to a wonderful friend who recently passed and I’m looking for her everywhere – near the white mum’s planted in her memory at the end of her building’s walkway, in the slow fall of a colourful Autumn leaf and near the ocean that she loved so much. Thank you so much for this…
