This is a poem about a young woman who had thought she had found her knight in shining armor only to find out that he had more problems that she could know. She writes about how she feels about herself, her love for him and how even though she could not be the one to help him, how she wishes him all the best. For anyone who has loved someone only to realize you were not meant to be, this poem is for you.
I lie awake at night and think
Of all that I’ve gone through
Since that darkened night so long ago
That first time I met you.
We both had lie we told ourselves
To make ourselves sound neat.
And so we shared those lies together
On that night when we did meet.
Time went by and soon we saw
We weren’t what we believed
And so we had to say good-bye,
To a love that we’d conceived.
We couldn’t learn to love ourselves
Or like the things we did
So you just thought of all my faults
And I just ran and hid.
And now so many years have gone
I am tired and confused
And you are still your same old self
I no longer feel amused.
Some people change, some just don’t
My need for change burns strong
You cannot help me grow much more
Because together we are wrong.
You need to find the light within
So you can be stronger day by day
Instead of always finding an excuse
Or someone else to pave the way.
So now we have to be alone
So we can change our views
Learn to make it by ourselves
Learn to fight so we don’t lose.
We need to admit when we are wrong
Learn to take some good advice
Try to make our lives more complete
Not do the wrong things twice.
I know that you can make it
I know that I an too
We both are strong survivors
And we can make it through.
Good luck on your quest in life
I wish you all the best
I hope you find what you will need
So you can finally be at rest.
