And just for thought...
On that patio, among the laughter,
Broken hearted and excited about my new chapter.
I wanted to tell them all how much they meant
But they knew and I knew, we all knew.
I hoped they understood, hoped they wouldn't forget
the moment we were sitting in then,
sun on our backs and tears stained cheeks.
I hoped they realized I wasn't gone
and they wouldn't be forgotten,
we just sailed different ships is all.
And isn't that life?
This ever changing rocky water.
We move forward to stop from being stagnant,
Stepping back two steps only to propel us forward.
Timing is everything I once heard someone say
and as sad as I was to sit there in there goodbyes,
I knew that my timing was just right.
I wanted to tell them all that we were all just fine,
maybe a bit bruised but the swelling always goes down.
I hope they understood that wings have to spread
even if they are a bit dusty, a bit worse for the wear.
I couldn't be the every man's foundation any more
because I could feel the super glue failing,
because I knew that I had been away from myself too long.
My wind was going in a different direction
and maybe we'll cross paths again,
caught in the same cross wind.
Among our tears, we said our goodbyes
but we all knew that love stained our cheeks.
Love will always bring us back to that patio.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
