Wherever You Are, I Hope You’re Not In Pain

I don’t know where you’ve gone, but I hope that you’re okay. I hope you’re not in pain. I hope that any bad feeling you were experiencing in the last moments you were here, I hope it all disappeared. I hope the pain left as quickly as you did.

I don’t know where you are right now, but I like to think you’re somewhere better, not just because that’s what everyone tells me, but because you deserve to be. Because I would’ve liked it if you could’ve stayed a little longer, but since you couldn’t I’m hoping wherever you are is pretty great.

I don’t know where you are right now, but I hope you see me. I hope you hear me. I hope you’re still a part of my life not just when I need or want you to be, but in the moments when I don’t expect you to be there. I hope you’re there for the moments that matter. I hope you share them with me, and I hope I make you proud. I hope those moments make you happy, wherever you may be.

I don’t know where you are right now, but I hope you’re not alone. I hope you have love surrounding you, comforting you, letting you know that everything will be okay. I hope wherever you are you have as much love as you did down here. I hope the place you’re in makes you feel loved in a way you’ve never felt before.

I don’t know where you are right now, but I really wish you were here. I wish I could wrap my arms around you and hug you. I wish you could hug me back. I wish I could say something funny to you and hear laughter in return. I wish I could ask you for advice and hear an answer. Wherever you are I really miss you.

I don’t know where you are right now, but I’ll have to find comfort in the moments when I trust that you’re listening. I’ll have to hope that when I talk to you, you can hear me, that when I need strength you’ll somehow make me feel it, that when I’m thinking about you, you’ll know. I don’t know where you are right now, but I hope I’m not selfish in the fact that I still need you. Because I know you’re no longer here, and it’d be nice if you were, but I hope that you’re around. I hope you’ll understand that I still need you around, and I hope that wherever you are, you’ll still be here for me in some way. I hope that you’ll make me believe.

I don’t know where you went, I don’t know where you’re going, but wherever it is, I hope it’s better than here. Wherever you are, I hope you’re not in pain, and I hope you know that you are loved and missed. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
