Good-bye to yesterday

A portion of me is gone
Just like that
My light snuffed out
But heres one thing you need to know
Im not gonna be okay
For a long time
But the day I am
Im forgetting you
But not what we had
Or the things you taught me
Just how it felt so bad
To lose a whole part of me
When all you hold dear can be gone in the blink of an eye
And you don’t really know why
All I can tell you is to
Truly appreciate that person
Who taught you to open
And let them in
But when the winds of change come whispering through
Time will do to you
What ive found done to me
Ive heard people say love dies
But I never believed it
Until he told me
His had
Yet mine still lies
Broken
Many times ive tried to close my eyes
Tonight
But each time your face appears
Taunting
Haunting
Killing me inside
I will cry a thousand tears
But still I wish to say
Thank you my dear
I will move on and find new happiness somewhere else
With someone else
I am sorry I could not give you
What you needed to be happy
People say time heals all wounds
Lets see
