I Miss You Still

In Memory of Jon Wright

July, 1965 – October, 2010

 Sunlight on a windowsill,

Small fingerprints I see,

In the dust of yesterday.

You left them there for me.


Shadows in a sunlit room

Move across the floor,

Following as you laugh and play.

I couldn’t miss you more.

Your voice so soft, still in the air,

Giggles and a grin.

Your reflection in my tears,

I still remember when.


Toys found in a corner box,

Waiting for your touch.

You’d bring them back to life, again,

I miss you, oh so much.

Ever will I miss your smile,

The honesty within,

Now, but just a memory.

I wish it were back then.


You grew to be a man one day,

Just when, I don’t recall.

Then cancer came to claim its cost,

You left me in the Fall.

The little boy that lived within,

The man you came to be.

He was there just one more time,

To say goodbye to me.

  8. This is a very sad poem, but it is a great tribute to your son. May God give you comfort and peace.

    I think that your idea of memory bears will help others who are grieving. I posted a link to your site on my Facebook page a couple of weeks ago, and one of my friends really liked the idea.

  9. This is very touching and absolutely beautiful. Death leaves us with a void that only God can fill, and we are comforted with the hope of a reunion in His perfect time.
