Or so it seems
I knew you so well
I'd like to say I still do, but we both know this bridge between us is too hard to cross
So what brought me here today
To write these words I could never say?
Is it wrong to reminisce?
I picture the fun, crazy, funny, and special times
And a smile stretches across my lips
The same smile you fell in love with
Then I hit myself
I realize how mean I was to you
How did you still love me?
I could never love myself
We fit together like puzzle pieces
Oh how I remember fitting together
Then you were there when I needed a shoulder to cry on
You carried me home, brought me tissues and wiped away my tears
You would let me talk about nothing for hours at a time And you'd listen and laugh
We'd laugh together
We even cried together
You held my hand and the world was mine
I shot you down when the air was thin and I couldn't breathe
But I was only hurting myself in the long run
Sometimes I wonder where you are
And who you're thinking of
I wonder if you've changed
And if you've considered falling in love
When it isn't a thing to consider
Hearts pounding chest to chest, nervous hands, wet lips
Finally the words escaped from your mouth
Like a butterfly from a mason jar
"I love you,"
"I love you too."
Never will I forget
Behind this coverup you see
Is something I can't explain or understand
Yet somehow I think you know
You're always there; always in my heart
