We were... inseparable.
You taught me so much.
We knew each other so well.
I saw empathy and selfishness.
You saw loyalty and dishonesty.
You were just what I needed when I didn't even know I was missing anything.
Were you just a crush? I do remember thinking how perfect we would be.
But of course it was better to keep things the way they were.
Of course. I saw that, once time gave me a little perspective.
Through good times and bad, we were a pair.
My heart aches sometimes, from thinking about where you should be.
There are so many things we could be sharing.
I just know we'd have been so proud of each other.
You changed my life.
I miss you, my friend.
This post was inspired by my late friend Rob.
Aw. This makes my heart hurt. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
It's funny how we always wonder about things. Even knowing it was for the best...there's always that "what if."ReplyDelete
You are amazing. You truly are.ReplyDelete
Swinging by from Mamakat's! Great poem. A lot of emotion that certainly resonates with me. Thanks for writing and sharing!ReplyDelete
This made me cry a little. You did a great job with the writing prompt, it makes me miss my friend too.ReplyDelete
Also commenting through a little blur of tears, for some tortured souls who don't know how great they are and for those who they leave behind. The candles in the wind and the what ifs.ReplyDelete
Funny, as I was reading this I thought about Rob right away. It brought tears to my eyes; how terrible for someone with so much more to do to be ripped away from his family. He had such ability to bring joy and laughter to any event.ReplyDelete
Don't we all have one of those? The "friend" that probably should have been something more? Sigh. Great poem. :)ReplyDelete
