We’ve All Been Here

Weve All Been Here long poem

Photo by frankieleon


My get up and go has got up and gone,
Today is here and yesterday’s gone,
I should be grateful that I opened my eyes,
I should be thanking God I’m alive.

I have so many plans I must fulfil,
I know I’m going to stay in bed until,
The absolute last minute I can possibly wait,
Then run around crazy trying not to be late.

I find myself thinking as I hesitate,
Would they mind, as I contemplate,
Does my presence matter if I’m not there,
Would they even notice or would nobody care.

My bed is cosy and my duvet warm,
I can see what awaits me with the dawn,
The frost is holding onto the leaves,
The day might be just the same I perceive.

I pull my covers right over my head,
I wish I was still sleeping instead,
When I’m asleep my head it seems to stop,
When awake I can confidently say it does not!

I guess I have to get up and face the day,
Though my mind and my body want to stay,
Right where I am and to disconnect,
For I’m not ready to be part of the world yet.

Sweetheart, You cared like no one did, ‘Where did it all go?’ My heart asks, as it bleeds. Once I asked you to leave me and go away, So easily you do everything I say. For once you could have
