Months have gone by since we last spoke
I kept thinking that love was simply a joke
You've been on my mind since that day
I still wondered what drove you away.
I kept blaming myself for the love that had gone.
Maybe it wasn't enough or I had it all wrong?
Maybe you were too good for me and deserved much better.
Someone high class or even a world trend setter.
Days have gone by without you on my mind.
I thought I finally got over you and love was redefined.
Then you made contact and the memories reappeared.
My hopes were once again crushed and it was all too very clear.
You've turned into someone I don’t know anymore.
My feelings for you have now vanished for sure.
I never imagined that you could become so cold.
The person who I thought that one day together we would grow old.
You made your choice and I've already made mine.
I will get through even though it might take some more time.
The memories are fading and all is starting to blur.
But the part hurting the most is that you have now turned into a complete stranger.
