My Writing: Dedicated to You {Free Verse Poem}

Happy Friday, everyone! I have a short poem for you that I wrote this past semester. It's not inspired by a real person, but I wrote it because I liked the idea of someone collecting memories for a loved one who has passed away. If you know someone who does this or if you do this yourself, then this poem is for you. 

Dedicated To You

Little bits and bobs
Added over time.
Movie stub.
Pressed flower.
Page from a book.
Newspaper clippings.
Key chains from around the world.
You’ll never get to see these things,
So I’ll bring them to this space
That’s dedicated to you.

  4. What a lovely poem! It's so short, but sometimes I think that's what makes a poem most poignant - when you can say what you mean with just a few lines :)
    xox,

  7. Really great Sara! I would suggest not sticking to the traditional sentences (eg. Movie Stub, Pressed / Flower. Page from a book) for a more unique cadence. Love it though :)

  8. I totally do that. I have kept just about everything of a friend of mine that passed away. I also love to keep those little ticket stubs and things. I have binders to organize it all.
    I also write random poems too. I really should document my poems but I also want them published and scared that if I post them on my blog that it might hinder me somehow.

  10. I'm glad you liked it! I don't know much about submitting poetry, but some places only want poetry that hasn't been seen anywhere else (ie. your blog).
