Do you ever think of me
Or smell the scent of my perfume
Then feel a smile come to your lips
While it lingers in the room?

Do you ever miss me
And wish that I was there
Making wonderful love all night
Out in the nighttime air?

Do you ever look up at the stars
Wondering if I'm looking at them, too
Then make a wish upon one of them
That I was there with you?

Do you ever cry with sadness
'Cuz I left this earth too soon
Do I bring you wonderful memories
As you stare up at the moon?

Do you ever feel cheated
For not doing all we planned to do
And did I make you happy enough
During the little time I had with you?

Just know I am always with you
Don't ever forget that- please!
And that it's my lips kissing you
Every time you feel a gentle breeze.

I like the poem, I thought it was well written, I just wanted to suggest removing the comma in the line

"Wondering if I'm looking at them, too"

Other than that, I enjoyed it.

This has a sweet flow, but I think it's too universal. Specifics might make it apply a little less directly to everyone... and that's a good thing.

Personalize this some. You describe memories that are common to many couples- tell us what makes it so special between these two particular people. Also, a little information about how the speaker died would be very enlightening and helpful to the reader.

The last two lines where great. THe rest of it is a little to mushy for me.  I need a little more meat in each line.  Dig deeper into the lonliness and the missing. Why, where did he go? I get you died... maybe, but then suck me into your post mortem lonliness.

thanks see ya  

It was nice

Hi Andrea,

I think it is pretty nice. A little universal, perhaps and a little too sweet too. But there is plenty of room for that in poetry. You have a couple of places where the rhyme seems a little forced and a couple of lines which break rhythm perhaps. Then there are a couple of lines which seem a little too "hallmarkish." I know we use that cliche too much but if you study it after a few days, I think you will see what I mean. I do think you have a good start here and would like to see a revision.

When you go to Italy perhaps the spirit of Ezra Pound will be upon you and you will do marvelous things in the way of poetry!

You show a lot of promise here!

awesome poem.  I loved the last two lines.  I agree with the others, what happened to the speaker?

Dear Andrea
You have said it all - and so wonderfully. An awesome poem that we all can relate to. Well done.

I too like the last two lines. It brought a simle to my face - and could taste the lips on the breeze.

Good one. Clearly from the heart.

hmmm, there are quite a few things i'd like to say. this was far too broad. there were no specific details. this could've been almost any couple. did you really die? are you simply dead to them? you need to strip away the sugar-cliches and play w/the bare bones of this one. it'll be fun. you could get a lot more out of it.
