Here is another "guess the POV" poem. I hope you enjoy it.


The Definition of Whole

There was a time when I lived,

And I enjoyed what life had to offer.

But, in a flash, it was gone,

Leaving me shattered and broken.

The life that I knew,

The life that I loved had ended.

How can I live like this,

A shadow of who I was?

How can I still be me

When a part of me is gone?

But time has a way of moving on,

And so did I.

I found a new place, a home,

And people who accepted me as I am. . .

As if I was whole.

But I can't tell them,

Or make them understand. . . .

Because, you see, what I lost

Is what they take for granted.

And while I again stand strong

In body and in soul,

I know what is missing,

I know what I lost,

And I can never again be whole.

So I live on with my memories.

And, now, I finally see,

I'll never again be whole like I was. . .

But I found the place where I'm truly meant to be.
