"i am weird"

I miss you.
I never realized how hard you were to find.
It took not seeing you,
To put you in my mind.

I will never take you for granted.
Never ever again.
It took not seeing you,
To realize you are my best friend.

When others say horrible things about me,
You pushed their words away.
It took not seeing you,
For me to appreciate.

Sometimes I cry.
You have always held my hand.
It took not seeing you,
For me to understand.

When I get mad I scream.
You have always listed.
It took not seeing you,
To realize how much I miss it.

I guess this is an appreciation,
Because when I am horrible to you, your still there for me.
It took not seeing you,
For me to finally see.

So please forgive me,
For never listening to you.
It took not seeing you,
To realize you are important too.

The author's comments:
the inspiration for this poem, was my best friend. when we went on spring break, i didn't see her for only about a week, but so much happened and i realized how much i need her. i realized that i am always pretty selfish with her, and i never listen to any of her problems. i constantly unload on her and complain to her. i just feel like not seeing her for that week or so really put into prospective how much i need her and couldn't live with out her.

Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family.

Thanks for commenting and rating my poem let me dream. I'm glad you liked it and could relate to it. When I write, I write with what I feel. All of my poems come from the heart. I think you are very talented also. I could feel your poem. I think it was a 5 out of 5. And I have found that I relate a lot to your poems.
