Where Are You Now?

Sometimes I think of you
and wonder where you are
and if you think of me on lonely nights
or dream about me when there's nothing left to dream
I don't expect you to miss me
and I know the phone will never ring
with your voice hanging on the other line
but I have to know
if I'm in your thoughts
or if you forgot about me
like you promised you never would
I can't bear the thought
of what we shared
being nothing than a footnote
in a forgotten chapter of your life
and even though I only think of you
during the loneliest hours of the night
Part of me is still hoping
that you're thinking of me
when I'm busy not thinking of you
So shed not a tear for what we lost
nor heave a sigh for what could have been
Just let me grace your thoughts
when the night hangs long and low
and everything will be right when we awake
in the worlds we've created
in the many years we've been apart

  46. Shelby says:

    Your poem reminded me of an ex-boyfriend that I have in Tenneesse. He still likes me and I still like him but things are becoming different between us, because of all the times that we went out. He broke up with me in the worst way ever. I forgave him and we went out again and then he cheated on me with one of my friends. Him still liking me isn't helping with the pain that he put me through.
