Thank You Dimka

a poem by Nadezhda Aleksandrovna Montik, USA - poetry writer, author, poet

Just be yourself you told me,
and that’s who I wanted to be,
but after all this time,
I had forgotten who was me.

Then in a unexpected flashback,
I recalled a smiling face,
and instant envy swept me,
as I remembered her happy gaze.

Her hazel eyes were shining
as I heard her cheerful laughter,
and then I froze in amazement,
as I remembered what had happened after.

The people there were laughing along
and the moment passed by in a blur,
yes she was loud and crazy,
but everyone had liked her.

I knew her once upon a time
but the girl I had known was gone
and in her place stood something weak
something hopeless and undone.

I was anything but prepared
when the realization hit,
and I realized I missed her
more than I wanted to admit.

Yes you told me to be myself
and so I went into my memory
and there with your encouragement
I had finally found me.
