I Should Have Been Better

Poem written about a close friend, one who’s going through a rough time, and has been for a while. I have helped, and I have also hurt. I am sorry about that. If only you’d know.


All the times we’ve been though,
The hurt I’ve caused,
The pain I continued.
The help I gave,
The care I shared,
The helping hand that was always there.

I am sorry,
I should have been better,
Should have helped more,
Should have hurt less,

And now you’re walking into that darkness alone.
Remember, you’re not alone.
Though you’re afar,
Let us talk,
Let us chat,
Let us cry,

Let us show the care that should have been at the forefront.

Show the goodness that this world needs,
Your world needs,
My world needs,
The goodness we should have kept.

Now you’re gone,
Take care,
Keep well,
Make sure you’re happy.

I should have been better,
Should have hurt you less,
Should have helped more.
I will always be there.
Even from afar.

I should have been better.
