Never Just Fine

By
More by this author
you weren't there when I was first born


and I cried like a normal baby


I am just fine without your presence





you weren't there when I learned to walk


and i'm fast like lightning


I am just fine without your presence





you weren't there when I shot my first basket


and my shot is flawless


I am just fine without your presence





you wrote me from your jail cell


I still have every letter


I realized I am not fine without your presence





I don't remember your face, your smile or your laugh


I don't remember because it doesn't exist


I am not fine without your presence





All these years later, your still not here


I laugh out loud and smile like no other


but below my laugh, beneath my smile


I am not fine without your presence
