I am learning to let you go.
The days drag on and on,
and it seems there is no end.
I try to let the thoughts of you fade,
put away the memories that haunt me,
and wait to heal and mend.
I have my good days,
and I have my bad days too.
Seems like you never fully leave my head.
I pass a stranger who smells like you,
or has a certain look in their eyes
And sometimes I cry myself to bed.
I wish I could erase all that has happened
go back in time and somehow change the outcome
but life surely doesn’t work that way.
The memories of you are still very real
and sometimes I can decipher dreams from reality.
What I wouldn’t give for one more day.
But I have to learn let you go now,
learn how to live without you,
face each day now without you there
I miss you and let you slip away
spent countless hours crying over you,
and the worst part is .. You don’t even care.
