About the Poem
If you know what it's like to try and find the words deep inside, and tell someone that means the world to you how you feel, then you know what this poem is all about. If you know what its like to regret every day of your life about how you did not ever tell this person to their face how you feel towards them then this poem is all you need.
When you know what it's like so many months after not saying a word to who you've written a precious poem to, and having every feeling for them just as it was so many months before, then you know me.
This poem I've written for a guy that touched me in a way you or him would never understand, but because I kept my vows, and didn't leak a single word how I felt towards him I now am swamped in regrets of what I had, what I've lost, and how I would give anything to make everything right between us today.
My Second Chance
|by Emily Rheault|
I knew you,
And every memory I shared with you
And how painful sometimes it is to remember
I was with you
And how close I felt to something special
Something deep inside
You were a part of me
You had a part of
And how every day I got up 'cause of you
And everyday I couldn't wait to see you
And how I regret those days I kept my silence
And how I wish I would have said something
said anything, to make you understand
And then we left
We stopped talking
It was my fault. It was.
And how I wish I could change that.
And how sometimes late at night, I can't fall asleep
cause I wish you were here
And how I wrap myself so closely with that blanket you used
Just to remember
Just to feel something
to feel a part of you
And how sometimes I lay lavishing myself in tears
Waiting, Longing, Yearning
to feel your touch
Just to be with you
Just to hold you
Just to kiss you.....once
And how some mornings I wake up reaching out for you
but you're not there
And sometimes I imagine that you care
And how once in a while I fantasize we'll talk
And how I wish I could take my second chance
to be near you.
