So soft, so familiar.
Even after years,
I can't find any better.
Back, wrapped in your arms
And still, you're perfect.
My good luck charm.
"It's weird that you still hold me perfect."
"No one else ever fit."
But you left.
And I can, now, honestly say, "No regrets".
You've made your decisions and lived your life,
Just as I have done with mine.
So why is it now that you come back to me?
Right after I've found some kind of happy,
But still not the same happy you give,
But happy enough to live and let live,
To smile on a daily basis,
That's when you come and do this!
You pick everything up and turn it upside down,
Or maybe you flipped it downside to the sky,
And put the right side up.
Either way you put it, I'm stuck between him and you,
And you ask what I want,
But honestly, I don't want to give either of you up.
