Let's Start There
Let's start there.
The relations we had, those are gone, but the memories will never fade.
The conversations have passed, but the messages will always be saved.
The comfort you provided, that lingers in a way
But the presence that you made, without ever being here, that has faded away.
Let's go there.
The gashes are fresh no longer, but the scars scream out in distress.
The day you left, has made a marking, that healing could never repress.
The heart is an organ that does wonders,
Like continuing to beat while broken in two
My love, it's been four years,
And still this incision feels fresh
From the words that came from you
Let's revisit there.
Denying what is bluntly honest is the worst that I have done.
Watching you leaving, and lying to myself, promising that you were the one.
The love of my life I would say, but never were you really.
Just a friend when I was in need, who departed when you were most needed.
But don't misunderstand; I do not blame you for my pain
I was young, and in "love", who waited in the pouring rain
Cliché it sounds, but so it's true, for you I would have forever stayed
But you never asked me to wait, and in my own deathbed had I laid
Let's explore there.
Gown I am, changed we are.
Yet, still, it is you I wish for on that shooting star.
For better the ending was, maybe.
Deep down I was still nothing more that a child, a baby.
But it was because of you that I am now more.
Given the time, the power, I have opened my wings and soared.
The saying "pain makes you stronger" applies more than ever
Because the deepest pain of all was the realization that for never would we be together
