Reflecting Allowed

I’ll Be Here for Me

This poem is inspired by an Inclusive Coaching workshop I’ve been taking this week, and thoughts about self-care. I conceived of it as a song with bluegrass music in Alison Krauss or Vince Gill’s voice. I don’t know why. Each verse/stanza is addressing a different person in my life. Don’t overthink it. I hope you enjoy it.

I know you sense

That something is wrong

Please don’t worry

I’ll be strong

I didn’t know

I wouldn’t have you for long

I hope you left in peace

I should have told you….

I’ll be here for me

When you’re gone

I’ll be here for me

When you’re gone


You were sweet

But then went sour

Your heart was here

They your soul left

You were here for me

Now you’re not

And I don’t need you

I’ll be here for me

When you’re gone

I’ll be here for me

When you’re gone

You’ve been my rock

All my life

I can’t imagine

Not having you there

But your voice

Will always live

Within me

You’re a part of me

Don’t worry about me

I’ll be here for me

When you’re gone

I’ll be here for me

When you’re gone
