Were You There? - Poem by Lisa Cresswell Wilkinson

You left my life but were you still there?
When I needed some guidance and someone to care.
Within my heart you warmed my soul
As my faith went slipping down a black hole
My life looked bleak, I felt nothing at all
Could pick me up so I had to fall
As I lay on rock bottom shone a glimmer of light
Energising inside me needing to fight
For years I searched for answers
To why you had suddenly gone
And not until I'd found them
Could my life move on
My hidden anger turned to peace
In my dreams you were with me
They warmed my heart immensely
And set the spirits free
I was at peace
To know you HAD been there
When I doubted my faith
And wondered who'd care

Were you there?

Yes Always x

    I enjoyed reading your poem too. Your poem says everything that I feel about my dad but still find it hard to say. Thank you for sharing it with me. (Report) Reply
