The Most 'Pathetic' Person I Know

by Leah Laiben

She wrote,
"I really miss you today
and it looks like winter outside."

It struck a chord.
I'd remember those words until the day I died.

She is a poetic goddess;
a master of her art,
and I ache to read her work,
(gettting to know her better with every syllable)
but those were the most beautiful
words I'd ever read,
and they were all mine;
she wrote them just for me.

I wanted to say to her,
"I miss you too,
I miss you more than anything in the world."

And she would believe me when I added,
"Because I miss you,
it is winter inside as well,
not just today,
but everday."

For Olivia

Olivia Weinkein? I do agree, she's quite the poet.

Beautiful tribute to a fellow poet! I love your choice of words to describe her and the way you feel about her! Very heartwarming piece

What a beautifully touching tribute to a fellow poet and friend; I'm glad she loved this piece as much as I did =)
