poetry by j matthew waters


I keep bookmarking these pages
thinking of you
saying to myself how you’d
love this or adore that

virtual pages made of words
or pictures or both
moments in time captured
reminding me of you

as I scroll slowly
through countless bookmarks
I feel a slight presence behind me
as if your breath is in the air
leaving me imagining
how your storied adventure
could ever possibly end

    This makes me think so much of my mommy (she passed away last month). I’m constantly thinking of things I’d like to tell her, or seeing things I want to show her.

    This is such a beautiful, touching poem.

  2. This is beautiful and makes me very sad.
