The days turned into weeks
And then into months
Creeping closer to the time of love,
And suddenly you were gone.
As easily as the mist
Empty wisps of smoke,
Which no longer exist.
Reasons: distance, timing, conflict, crying
A million reasons for you to leave,
A million more for why you should’ve stayed.
And I’ll admit,
sometimes at night I still see your face
And in my dreams,
asking me if we should try this again
A strange kind of wistful longing
For what we could have had
Everything we could have been
The words that went unsaid.
But I don’t miss you anymore
At least, not that much.
You taught me to be brave,
And to not fall apart.
I think it’s time to move on now
Towards better things
But you’ll always be there with me,
A forgotten dream.
