    Just say the main areas of contention or some of the interpretations you're going to be evaluating. Maybe give some context on the poem?

    While You Weren't Here© Janet Michael Published on February 2006While you weren't here
    I cried every night
    A million tears fell
    Still my heart wasn't right

    While you weren't here
    I did what I could
    Hoping against hope
    My decisions were good

    While you weren't here
    I gained some in age
    Things just went on
    And life turned a page

    While you weren't here
    I just tried to go on
    Knowing what didn't kill me
    Would only make me strong

    While you weren't here
    A whole lot got changed
    My life became different
    My world rearranged

    While you weren't here
    I had to learn to be alone
    To stand on my two feet
    To make my own home

    So that's where I am now
    At this stage of my life
    Still scared and alone
    Still coping with strife

    And oh how I wish that
    Things could be different
    That I could go back
    To a time in the past

    To a time before
