I Miss You Poem

Never wait to apologize to the ones you love. I waited 3 weeks not telling someone sorry. I've lived the last 7-8 months of my life regretting that because she was my heart, my everything. If this helps anyone, even a bit, I will be glad. Thanks for reading my thoughts. I miss you, Steph.

What Was I Thinking?


Published by Family Friend Poems October 2011 with permission of the Author.

The night before I made you mad
I wasn't appreciating the love that I had
I came home so drunk, I was really quite late
I left you alone, sitting home there to wait

I was too self-involved, I wasn't using my head
Alcohol took over, its hunger I fed
I was drinking too often, I thought I was fine
Too blinded to realize the problem was all mine

I was never mad at you, I was mad at myself
I let life pass me by, seemed it was on the back shelf
I blamed all of my problems on everyone but me
Destined for ruins and alone I would be

I made a bad choice, I should have been there with you
My greatest mistake, and there was nothing I could do
I tried to get sober that night but made it worse than you know
I hated myself 'cause I resorted to blow

That night I never came home, cause I felt too much shame
You'd be able to tell, and there was only me I could blame
I text you that night to say tomorrow I would call
The next day with a hangover, I would forget that all

I went through my next days, scared you'd be mad
Hiding ashamed, not thinking you were sad
I forgot I had hurt you, I couldn't remember last night
My words cut you deep, on the phone in our fight

You wanted to love me, to work through it all out
I didn't know that, I was too scared you would shout
I gave it some time to get my head straight
I took way too long, how long should you wait?

You had now left me when I got my priorities in line
I wanted to marry you, but you were no longer mine
I cried and I lost it, how could I mess up so bad
This had all happened 'cause I spent to much time being mad

I got over my issues, I finally see clear
I was drinking and hiding, I had too much fear
The old me is gone, but how could you know
I wish I still had you, how I wish that was so

I'm sorry, Bunny (S.A.M.), I miss you every day

I am so sorry to hear that. I felt my heartbreak more with every word. Sorry you had to go through that! Hope your life will be good and that you will find love and happiness again. Everyone makes mistakes, but I don't think you'll pay for it the rest of your life. ;) I wish you all the best in life!

I have been separated for a few months after 20 years of marriage. I had no idea I was marrying an alcoholic until we were about 6 months into the marriage. We both had children, me 3 & he 2. It was very difficult to blend families. So I imagine that's why he "fell off of the wagon," as they say. I stayed when several times the signs were there saying it's time to go. I just wish I could hear these words coming from him. Kids are grown and gone and we should be celebrating the best years, but due to his drinking we have no retirement and really no relationship left. But my love for him is still so, so strong. I'm lost and broken but can't go back. Love this! Wish I could get him to see things like this. Wish I could have about 19 years ago. Thank you for sharing, and praying you and yours can fix things.

This is a beautiful love poem. I wish you could get her back and right your wrong, because you truly sound like you've learned your lesson. Well wishes.
