Words left up in the air
You never told me our time was up
We just faded out
A candle left running in an empty room
Light extinguishes, darkness engulfs the space that you left
I’ve bent and shaped other pieces, No one fits as you did
You knew things
You took them away with you
And now here I am
Walking behind you along this path
Holding the thing that tore us apart
Do I dare catch up
And say hello
Do I turn around
I stop, others pass me.
I watch you fade out
Not a single look back
I know you know I’m here
But you don’t dare turn around
Goodbye would have been easier
Hello should’ve been avoided
But this is life and each person, each memory is lesson.
So I’m saying it,
I’m saying it to the past that was
the present that is
and the future that could have been
I am turning around, walking away.
And when you follow me
And you will, because at a time I knew your every move
I will turn around
I will hold out my hand and shake your with a smile
Then turn and leave you standing to watch me fade out.
Goodbye my friend.
