And I really wish to hear from you tonight!

by Lori Blair

Oh I know time has past us by

and it's been a while

but I still smile

when I think of you and I just wish you would know

and I am wishing beyond reasonable hope

that you go online to say hello or goodbye

cuz I can't stop thinking of you

and I really miss you tonight

as all those late nights when you left

It's been so long but just as hard

to realize that you're gone

when all I knew was the truth

of you and I

and I will miss you until the day I die

and even then, further, from the inside then out

We go back to the beginning

before time began its hardships

not much said amiss

but I know you wish what I wish and I doubt you'd

lead me astray within these cold winds that prey the night

barren without you or your words of encouragement

and I still believe in your mind

and I really wish you were here

and you never really said your goodbyes

and I keep waiting to hear news

and it's so hard for me, my email

is so empty of you

but I know you are still within me through hard times

cuz I feel you still are there and I'm not so scared alone

though this home is not the same without you tonight

but I wish you were here to invite me

cuz I can't incite anything more

without you here to hold me through the night

It's been so long but just as hard

to realize that you're gone

when all I knew was the truth

of you and I

and I will miss you until the day I die

and even then, further from the inside then out

and I just really wish to hear from you tonight

and I just really need to hear from you tonight
cuz I just know true love is a love that is not blind

just say you love me too without wasting time

say you love me but not goodbye!

Well...Lori, this made me cry...overendowed with emphathy...I don't know why....this is such deep expression so well done, it stabs my heart too. Excellent.

Lori. it goes without saying, you have a unique way to say things that would not have been said lest you took the lead. your words culminate to sanctuaries within the heart and soul which are not easy places to locate, but locating such places seems second nature to you. and having located such you do not come to rest to loaf within their haven but are up and about being gracious hostess offering to your own heart and soul offerings they cannot offer themselves. and could it be otherwise that your heart and soul will ever be grateful to you and your splendid feeling searching pen? as will we for such panoramas of feeling that you offer with each posting.

such an honest plea for communication of the heart and soul, Lori. I had to read it twice to appreciate why it captivated me so!

One great, beautifully lyrical line after another.

I can really feel your pain here, partially because of the way you say it, but mostly because I can relate.

It is hard sometimes to comment on poetry so personal. There is no rating that can measure love, no words of poetic comparison that can describe how deeply hearts feel for one another or how much they can miss each other from miles and miles between them. I wonder if empty emails await messages of love, each wondering why the other has not written when both should be. You display your feelings so vividly that even a mole tunneling for love can see in the dark. jj

This one brings back a memory of a lost love. Your relentless lyrics are begging to be sung, which I just did while playing my Martin. You are a real treasure on this site. Baby, please don't go and never say goodbye!

Sometimes the immediacy of technological advances only makes these things more painful.
