You Left Me

© Cassi
Your the only one I see,
I turn around,
and your right behind me.
I never wanted you to go,
but now you're just the wind that blows.
Why did you leave me,
without saying goodbye,
you are the one who haunts my dreams,
you are the tears that I cry.
You meant so much to me,
it's too hard to believe,
that your no longer here,
I saw you but you just disappeared.
If you came back,
the one thing I would say:
Don't leave today.

  • This poem has definitely hit home for me. Exactly a month ago today I lost someone I love. He was my everything we were to have a family together, things are never what they seem. I pray and wish everyday it is not true and hope to wake up and it all be a terrible dream and him still be here with us. I never got the goodbye I wanted, I wasn't ready to let go and just want him here to stay.
    This is a beautiful poem!

  • This poem brought tears to my eyes. My dad took his life yesterday. We had just talked a few days before about my up and coming wedding and him walking me down the aisle and everything else. I got the call just before I was about to eat our 4th of July bbq. Needless to say I didn't eat or go see fireworks or anything. I love and miss you already dad.

  • I just lost my ex fiancι and the father of my kids and I am torn because I don't think he realized how much he meant to me and how much I Loved and adored him even with his flaws coz we shared a great 7 year relationship and we were blessed with beautiful gals. It's hard having to say goodbye to the one person you truly loved and without knowing what is expected of you by the people next to you and without knowing what I will say to his kids one day when they are all grown up. I told myself that I won't hurt nor cry but I was wrong I am torn apart by all this. May your soul rest in peace.

  • I lost my sister a few years back.in 2010. My best friend and confident. She killed herself with a .38 , a gun that should have never been returned to her, in her mental state. She had been battling pains and depression for many years. I couldn't sing at her wake, only tears choked my throat. Undeleted emails there to read, one in particular, the one I was too busy to read, the one that was crying out for help, but it was so long that I would read it later, but I was too late, so read those long emails now, not later, so you won't be blaming yourself and wondering if she would be here writing you long emails. I miss her like it was yesterday.
