Almost The days turned into weeks And then into months Creeping closer to the time of love, And suddenly you were gone. Promises evaporated 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.
