And just for thought...
He said he would grow old with me.
He said he would love me until the day he died.
They are both gone.
Does it matter that I am no longer the swing in their sway?
That I’ve fallen from being the apple of their eye?
A moment of love eases a lifetime of loss.
He said he would meet me at our coffee shop on December 20th at 4:20 p.m.
And I said I would be there but I never showed up.
Life sidetracked us, rambling around, engrossed in our own trivial.
I should have been there but I know he never showed up either.
He said he could not imagine a day without me
So I wonder how he gets by now?
We give each other these words, words we truly mean
Until the day comes when we realize they were all empty
But I can look in the mirror and smile.
A boy, a man once loved me, stood tall just for me
And they’re both gone now but I’m not.
He said he would never forget me, that he meant it.
I said I would always be around.
Does he know that I can’t take the statue of Mary seriously anymore?
Does he realize that pine straw still makes me uncomfortable just to look at?
A moment of love eases the memories that hurt.
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.
