I just want to have someone around,

A person who’ll pick me up when I’m on the ground.

Someone who longs to see me as much as I long to see them, 

Just a person who treats me like a gem.

A person who makes you their number one priority, 

Someone who can command over you their authority.

You don’t have to be around all the time or be stuck to my hip,

But maybe once in a while a milkshake you could whip.

Could be a lover or maybe a friend,

Or maybe just a colleague who’d have some time to spend.

All I ask is for a few minutes out of your day,

Share a phone call or some texts or exchange thoughts about Hemingway.

  1. A friend who is ‘fully present’ is such a blessing. We humans long for company, conversation and are such suckers for emotional warmth. I am there if you need to talk.

  3. This reminds me of my mother. She’s in her late 50s and is single, as my father passed away 11 years ago. In the beginning, naturally, she didn’t want to be with anyone and wanted to live the rest of her life with the memories of my father. Each time I spoke about her seeing someone (not a partner, so to say) she refused. Gradually, over the last few years, she wants to make friends and meet people who are there for a talk, a phone call, or an email. Someone who she can speak to and become friends with. Sadly, she hasn’t met anyone yet. Your poem reflects a lot of her, may be all of her feelings. Thanks for such a beautiful piece of writing.
