You Were Here
My eyes searched and found yours
In the mirror. I cannot get or look
Back to the tragedy. All the years
Are completely lost. I miss the crook
Of your arm where I used to keep
Myself buried. I almost always took
You as my shield. You were deep
Like the ocean, but with a good
Heart. You led me up the steep
Mountain. You always stood
Right there with me. Even if I
Did not want you there you could
Never leave my side. Every one of my
Lows and highs became yours too.
You were not afraid when I would cry.
I was never too much for you
To handle. You said you always saw
My strength. You always knew
Me, regardless if I was red, raw
And bleeding all over you. Even when
I was a mess and you saw my flaw
I was beautiful. You loved me again
And again, but a part of me did not
Believe you. I should have back then
Hung onto you. You always brought
Everything with the rain and sun.
I miss being in that special spot
With you when we had those fun
And serious moments. I know that
We should have never been done.
