Wished I had You

a poem by Debika

I met him just by chance one day,
The man I always wanted by my side,
To hold me as I cried
And make my gray day look ever so bright

I fell so deeply in love with him,
Felt scared when not close to him,
Needed his warmth and comforting words,
To make me feel I have some worth
In his life.

Every now and then
I would get the lonesome feelings
And then would I but tell him things
I did not mean

I would accuse and make him low
But Lord, did he just know
How to make me his own.
His love for me knew no bounds
I knew this too
Yet I just felt so scared
Wanted him for all time’s sakes
He had a wife
Who had her stake
In his life as well.
