Let Them Miss You

Published by Family Friend Poems September 2021 with permission of the Author.

Let them miss you.
Let them wonder what wild joy you’re chasing,
why you didn’t think to invite them along.
Let them hear your laughter from afar,
watch as it pulls the sun from the sky,
marvel at how easily you become that light.
Let them yearn to be your moon,
long for a chance to reflect the warmth you provide,
admire how you can be so vibrant and alive
without them beside you.

Let them miss you.
Let yourself learn how okay you are
on your own.

Lauren’s writing is blunt, bold, and speaks with raw honesty about her personal struggles with relationships, self-acceptance, and self-love.
