the one I knew

Remember that one night... remember all those times?

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.

  Mama’s Losin’ It

This post was inspired by my late friend Rob.


  1. Aw. This makes my heart hurt. Thanks for sharing.

  2. It's funny how we always wonder about things. Even knowing it was for the best...there's always that "what if."

  3. Swinging by from Mamakat's! Great poem. A lot of emotion that certainly resonates with me. Thanks for writing and sharing!

  4. This made me cry a little. You did a great job with the writing prompt, it makes me miss my friend too.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Don't we all have one of those? The "friend" that probably should have been something more? Sigh. Great poem. :)
