I Miss Her So - Poem by Matthew Jenkins

My best friend isn't here right now, and no she isn't dead.
It's because we haven't spoken, no not one word has been said.
My best friend isn't here right now, and it's all because of me.
I set her aside for another girl, we just could not be.
My best friend isn't here right now, I've betrayed all her trust.
Because my heart was set on another, I followed after my lust.
My best friend isn't here right now, to know just what I feel.
When I think of her and I, I cry, because of our fate I've sealed.
My best friend isn't here right now, but if she was I would say.
All our love that's held us together, is the love I want to feel again some day.
My best friend isn't here right now, but if she was I'd let her know.
All our feelings from the past have grown and now they want to show.
My best friend isn't here right now, but if I had just one more chance.
I'd take her to a special place, a land of endless dance.
My best friend isn't here right now, to tell her about my love.
Its endless power and beauty has been sent to me from above.
My best friend isn't here right now, and I doubt she'll ever be again.
To show how much I really care and of my love that was darkened by sin.
If my best friend were here right now I'd hug her for all my days.
And sit beside her always, and forever hold her gaze.

    I have a similar piece myself in my poems.
    You just keep wondering sometimes 'should I have turned left at Albuquerque? '
    Oh well, c'est la vie! And there's only one way to go: Forward.
    Good poem.

    Amicalement votre,
