I Beg You To Live Poem by Amy Ludidi

I Beg You To Live

Rating: 4.9

I see you my friend
Your pains, struggles and challenges
I have faced them with you
I walk with you

Your ailments i have felt
Deep within these veins
Under my surface
...my internal
I see you my friend

I have heard you cry
And have cried with you
For my shoulders were
Sometimes not big enough
I have ached for you

I know your story, your legend
In this very heart
Beneath this skin
I have felt your sorrows

I remember the times
That you felt helpless,
And in despair
Inside i was torn for you

When the wind blew west
And you had other plans
I felt the hollowness
Of your soul
When you finally gave in
I understood

But i beg you to live


R.I.P Pam Shabangu

I was listening to Dark Matter by Porcupine Tree while I read this. It enhanced the mood of your poem. Very expressive.
