1. Searching for you

The one that got away

What’s in the box?

My recollections of you

Tears and sadness

Memories too

The days that passed

Daydreaming in the clouds

Dancing freely

You were my wow

You slipped through my fingers

My biggest mistake

I made my choices

Now it’s too late

My life in darkness

Regrets eat my soul

The day you left

Lost in a black hole

You thought only about you

For every little thing

That was your song

What you would always sing

I loved you

My heart always will

Torn out and crushed

So many tears spilt

The one that got away

You selfish inconsiderate one

Lessons learnt, scars for life

Even if I was just some fun


Taken from my latest poetry book: Searching for you by Philip Lister


Searching for you is a collection of poetry about love, heartbreak and happiness. A raw journey looking at our search in life to find ourselves and that special someone.
