Powerful poem from student coming to terms with her feelings about being left behind by a loved one

And you left

All of the sudden you were gone

And with you,

All my childhood memories, my dreams

And a bit of myself as well.


We grew up together

You made me who I am today

But you won’t see me growing anymore

Because you left and I hate you for that


We had so many promises

So many things to live together

But now I’ll have to live them alone

Because you left and I still hate you for that


You have left so many people behind that loved you

You have left us behind

Like we didn’t matter

Like what we had planned meant nothing

And you left without saying goodbye

And I hate you for that
