After All This Time

After All This Time

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay

All these years when I could have had you 
I ignored the temptations 
Always wanting more 

All these years when you could have been the one 
I pushed you farther away 
Than you already were 

All these years when I knew you loved me 
I searched for someone new 
Someone better to come 

All these years watching your tears wash away 
I looked away and pretended to never know the reason of them 

All these years when I have been enclosed in a shell 
Of my falsified ego and dignity 
You are still here waiting 
For me to open and accept the reality 

So 

After all these years of 
Keeping you waiting 
I finally come to you 
I know you won't push me away 
Like I did with you...

Beautiful poem on the nature of a lover. When we love some one and he/she does not respond, we face such situation. while we should respect all those who love us. In my opinion love does not mean to be together. Love is also a kind of respect yourself. I love your thought because I have faced such situation. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for liking and reviewing, Farhan 😊
This poem is a bit melancholy but truly touching. I think it is inspired by your very own experience, isn't it? but prove me wrong. I really like it tho. Keep it up!

This is a very lovely written poetry! Knowing that the other person never gives up showing his/her good intentions to the other person. Which finally at the end the other person notices and accepted his/her good loving heart! Lovin' It YumnaKay!

i can relate to part of this...although not same ending as i waited too long and she was no longer available...but the "what if's" still ring in my mind and heart.

nicely done. good to have second chances when we aren't very smart the first time.
