The Ghost


Your name
whispered on my breath
a breath caught in the cold air
misty breath and a hazy reflection
and all I can see is you
an echo of a dream
the dream of love
a love that died so long ago
but I remember and
I whisper
your name on my breath
and it echoes
in the silence where I long to hear your laughter
in the emptiness of life where I feel your presence
yet love
I am without you
and all I can do is
remember

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
