By Charles Robert Lindholm

There Are Times
Late At Night,
In The Darkness,
Or At Dawn’s First Light

When I Miss You,
More Than The Everyday
All The Time Missing You,
I Usually Feel

Those Missing You Times,
Are The Hardest For Me,
To Endure,
And I Can’t Help Crying
From The Ache In My Heart
For You, Darling

Trying To Fall Asleep,
Without Your Sweet Kisses,
Or Your Arms Wrapped Around Me,
Is Torture

As The Tears And The Memories
Fall Upon My Heart,
Dripping And Dropping,
One After Another,
Making My Heart
Ache For You

Waking Alone,
In The Soft Glow Of Dawn,
In Our Bed,
Without Your Kiss,
Your Smile,
Your Warm Embrace

Wanting What Is Gone
And What I Cannot Have,
Is My Own,
Private Little Hell,

When I Miss You
The Most
Is The Time
That I Pray The Hardest
And The Longest

For The Day
When I Will Miss You,
No More,
And We Can Dance
Together Again,
With The Angels

        1. Well, I have enough selected for one book from your selections I think, well maybe 35 pieces.
          Considering putting out a series of three issued every four months or so. Have to get them formatted and edited/reviewed. Thanks for all your treasure hunting for me, Dear!! Can’t tell you how precious and sweet it is of you to explore my archives.

        2. I am so thrilled that you love to read my poetry and beyond that for wanting to help choose for my book/s. Sounds like we can share the same wish when we through coins in the wishing well? LOL! That will be the hard part of putting a book together.

    1. I cannot properly tell you how glorious it was to read that opening line to – UNRAVELING and have my heart scream – Stop!!! That is awesome and to no sooner finish reading your poem than to rush to start writing this poem. It was one of those exquisite experiences (stream of consciousness) where the poem almost wrote itself – As I’ve always told You, Holly – Your words reach my heart and have a magical power!!!

      Holly, I shall always be indebted to You for giving me the seed of inspiration that bloomed into this blossom of a poem – a precious lifetime gift from you to me!! You have made my days for the rest of my life with this gift and your unbelievable comments to me. They will always make my heart happy and make me count you as one of my blessing each day to have been My Muse for this poem. It’s kind of like an Olympic Moment that lasts for a short period of time but is a lifetime memory and joy!!
      Thanks for giving me that, Sweet R!!
