I'm Here

Now the words pour out of me

Now that you’re not around

I can’t believe it took so long

For me to hear the sound

My heart makes when it’s silent

When you’re silent

Please know I’m here

Please know I’ll be there

For you through all this

Please don’t be scared

 

I remember your words to me

Right before it grew quiet

The sound of your voice in my ear

Now that you are strong enough to fight

They brought me to my knees and I was quiet

You were quiet

 

Please know I’m here

Please know I’ll be there

For you through all this

Please don’t be scared

 

Time has always been on our side

Years pass and still I know you

One look into your eyes and I know I’ll be home soon

We’ve lived different lives apart

You’re always in my heart

Am I in your heart

 

Please know I’m here

Please know I’ll be there

For you through all this

Please don’t be scared

Please don’t be scared

I’m always here

Even when

I’m

Not

There

I absolutely love your intro to this poem, how very true this is.

"Now the words pour out of me

Now that you’re not around

I can’t believe it took so long

For me to hear the sound."

Really nice poem,

Sage
