Never Heard

A graduate of Psychology who finds writing poems therapeutic. A caring mother, loving wife, compassionate counselor, and music lover.


Recalling the past

Flashing back memories

Figuring out almost faded details

Never heard you say the words I longed to hear

Financially providing

Materially as being given

Without further deliberation

That was it and never heard the magic words I considered


How's me after all these times

I know you're losing track of that

Personally, I have grown a lot

Wish I was able to let you know that

Showing moderate and even less concern

Sounds shallow and superficial

Hesitates to show inner sentiments

That is probably what I need to keep me going


As my mind travels through

Quite difficult and hard to remember

Any single moment you tried to say how's me

With the truest sense of the word

Silence increases

Pretending things are just okay

I know there's something wrong

Yet never heard from you


Little appreciation

Simple how are you

Making me feel that I belong

That is humbly I need and never heard from you

Wish we are conditioned to be open

Open about expressing the way we feel about things

Since we are already clouded

With the psychological spaces, we cage ourselves


Praying that I could find the key

To enrich and save the family relationship we have

And live much more meaningful lives

That was never heard before

Clouds of doubt may often covered my mind

An array of confusion may sometimes overwhelmed my heart

Yet, here I am still hoping and looking for bright new days to come

Even if I never heard the words I longed to hear from you.


About This Poem

At some instances in our family life, a lack of openness may not be of help. It hurts the most since we wanted to reach out and feel that our presence matters. May concern & appreciation be in your home.

Nice poem on importance of openness in any relationship (new or old).

Being open comes with confidence when one knows that faltering or getting comments or few taunts does not make much difference, in the course of interactions among people. Where most falter is when one takes these comments seriously.

Read my poem "Confident"

i hope you will like.
