7 Short Missing You Poems
1. Lonely Hours
My days stretch long without you,
Lonely hours passing slow.
In night’s darkness, I dream of you,
Your smile, your laughter’s flow.
Across the miles, my heart still sings,
‘Come home to me’ is my refrain.
2. The Moon Still Rises
My love, your absence deepens,
A hollow in my chest where your head once lay.
The moon still rises but shines less bright
Without you here to share its soft light.
My heart beats your name through the long night
As I await the blessed dawn of your return.
3. The Silent Hour
I miss you in the silent hour
When shadows stretch thin and long.
In the startled bird’s lonely cry
Echoing his mournful song.
In the sigh of wind through the trees
And the shiver of leaves in the breeze.
In the fading bloom, the dying light,
My aching heart calls your name at night.
4. Fade to Gray
Without you, the moon’s glow is but a pale whisper
The stars, cold and remote.
How can I marvel at the night sky’s beauty
When you are not here to gaze with me?
The world’s brilliance dims in your absence,
Its colors fade to gray.
My hands ache to caress you again,
To feel the warmth of you near.
The days trudge by, empty of music,
While my heart beats your name.
Return to me in dreams, if not in flesh
For you are my light, my all.
5. Summer Breeze
The days are bright, though we’re apart
Our souls still woven close at heart.
This distance is but a brief span—
Our joyful reunion’s at hand!
Love’s light endures all trials with ease
We’ll embrace again on a sweet summer’s breeze.
6. Lost at Sea
The shore is lonely without your footprints next to mine,
Our names no longer written in the sand.
The crash of waves falls hollow to my ear
And reminds me that my heart is hollow, too.
Once playful, a salty breeze stings my cheeks and eyes.
And the rolling dunes grow static
Without your long, determined strides.
Far and wide is the horizon – so vast without you.
There is no glimmer of a boat or solitary bird.
I am lost at sea alone, waiting for the tide to turn.
Your smile lights up my life
In your absence, days are dim
Laughter we once shared
Memories glimmer in the dark
Counting moments til you return
8. Missing You Haiku
Nights ache without you, love
The moon’s light dimmed by our distance
My soul waits for you
