As I search for simple words to explain

The way I feel, the hurt, the pain

I can only grasp what few memories I have

As I wait and I wonder what you think of

I know the feeling, I’ve been there before

Should I open a new one or just shut the door

I thought I had found the one

Now I must wait and see what he will become

I cannot just walk away, say goodbye

Forever I would have to see

Those warm brown eyes, no longer mine they’d be

If I am spared this eternity

I fear I may go in the other direction

No longer wanting, needing or waiting

To make sure I will never be hurt like this again

Oh I know how it is to be torn

I have been there time and again

No matter how many times I told myself

I would never listen

I just wish I could have known in advance

So I could have just one last time

Savor every moment

Remembering when he was mine
