Just by Being There

Poetry by Mairi Maclean

It’s 3 am and I am in incredible pain,
I wake you in tears just like heavy rain.
There is nothing you can do for me,
But you do it anyway, so graciously.

You soothe me back into the present,
Despite the ache growing incessant.
And I know you would take this all upon yourself,
But you just being there is beautiful for my health.

You give me strength and solace in every way,
And that is a gift I’ll never be able to repay.
I look at you with pure devotion,
And our love spirals into further motions.

You take away all the hurt,
With your being, jokes and cute little flirts.
I have never been so thankful to have met someone like you,
You are my dream and future in all that you do.

Meet Mairi

I am 20 years old from Scotland and have been using poetry as a vessel for my own physical and mental well-being. I have been on a very hectic health journey, enduring 3 cancer diagnosis’/relapses over my short 20 years. 

I was on the cusp of getting my life together again; starting university to study English Literature and Religious Studies, moving to a new city and into my own flat, and getting my health (mentally and physically) back to where it once was. Then bang. The cancer came back. It will be a long recovery, but I am prepared. 

I want to keep my mind alive with curiosity, intrigue, and passion. I love to write and explore the mind, and poetry is such a beautiful platform to do this. I wish for a world free of pain – this is obviously naive – but more in the sense that we can accept our limitations while building each other up. A world where kindness prevails, and I hope to embrace life in new ways. Finding new ways to be inspired, to love and to live.
