Especially during those times that I feel like thanking everyone by just simply being there, those are the times that I feel particularly tongue-tied and shy. Those are the times that I would just simply write it out on a piece of paper, and – possibly – stow it away and never give it out.
It’s my flaw really. I couldn’t speak out at the right moment, and when the right moment is there – I couldn’t get to say the right words.
Thank God for written words. They could be such consolation.
This piece was written for those people who stood by me in times when I felt down and worthless. You may be the reason why I felt like so, but I still do thank you now. Because without you, I wouldn’t be who I am right now.
It’s definitely one of my grateful-to-have-you poems. But I still hope they get the message.
Without ThemNov. 9, 2004Without them, I wouldn’t be
Without them, its ‘sorry’ for me
Losing them would be a total pain
A pleasant friendship I wouldn’t regain
Without them here I wouldn’t feel
A love so precious and so still
Making brighter my every day
Loving me in a special way
Without them here I would feel so dead
Boring life – would dry my head
If from my side they would be gone
Nothing would be accomplished – nothing could be done
Without them here, I wouldn’t live
False accusations I would probably believe
For they are my breath, my life, my voice
Who help me through in my every choice
