My hand reaches out

you're not there

to touch your face

caress your hair

to hold you close

but you're gone

from day to night

and dusk to dawn

but my hand still reaches out

to grasp the emptiness

that was you

Quite beautiful Melissa
You have a way of reaching the emotional parts that other poets aspire too.
Keep on plugging away

Flows very fast. Memories can give us pain.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 6/5/2009
The simple lines of this are perfect to express that lonely feeling that most of us have felt at least once or twice in our lifes. To have the warmth of another's body next to ours then to lose that warmth either physically or emotionally is deveastatingly lonely.
Great write Mellisa
