Had You Been Here

Had You Been Here

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

For my best friend..

"
Whenever I feel alone 
I think of you 
And the times we had together 
Content in each other's company 

Whenever I feel down 
I talk to you 
Though you can't hear my raging thoughts 
Still that feeling gives me comfort that 
Had you been here 
I would have never felt this emptiness 

Whenever I feel bad 
I remember the times 
You made me realize 
How good a person I am 
If only just for you 

Whenever you feel like it 
Just come back 
I want to make amends 
For my selfish acts 
And for thinking only about myself 
While all you did was 
Care for me

A touching tribute to your friend, as well as a plea for redemption and forgiveness. There's a lot of underlying emotions and soul bearing behind this, two things that often make for powerful writing. I like the confessions that then shift and place the ball in your friend's court, that's a nice touch. Thank you for sharing such a personal poem!

It's a good one. Relatable to me though. Let's not repeat the same mistake again. :)

Wow - how heartfelt and beautiful. A confession of human-ness wrapped up in a prayer to the Universe for a reunification with someone who obviously meant a great deal.

We mourn the loss of what we lost instead of cherishing them while we still have them. ❤️ Beautifully presented 🍻
