You Know | A Poem by Ms Moem

Did you know you left me speechless
Though it was not your intent.
Did you know I’d search your last words
For what was really meant.
Did you know I couldn’t believe it
And still you went away.
Did you hear me say I’d miss you
And that I wished that you could stay.

Did you know that I’d still feel you
As day drifted into night.
Did you know I saw your wonder;
Your star never shone so bright.
Did you know that I had questions
That I’d never dare to ask
And did you know that I was hiding
Behind a brave and comforting mask.

Did you know I’d saved your laughter
And snapshots of time gone by
But did you ever truly realise
Your absence would make me cry.
Did you know you left a legacy
For all the world to see?
Apart from all your spirit
There’s parts of you left within me.

So don’t think I will forget you
As you haven’t really gone.
Don’t think that I am hardened
Even though life must go on.
Don’t think that I don’t need you
And do not think that I don’t care.
Don’t think that I don’t see you
Because your soul is everywhere.
