Apart

So we’re apart, And our talks will never be the same again. I guess I was the cause But didn’t realize it until then; Having never thought of befriending you I ended up messing up everything. I know that had to be so For in my vivid memories, There was so much pain, Much more than I would endure. So much that I wanted to die and let you live, Because then, I would not see you again. My friends knew something I did not know of, But one of them was brave enough to tell me And he whispered something to my ear That, my mind would never forget It had to hurt but I had no cure Until the time I grasped this fact: Our paths were always two-way apart. I hardly could erase it all from the mind And so long did it take That I now thought it would rain forever I was finally free, so I thought So many others I met, and the first thought was gone. Later in time, we could talk again Only at your initiation It was a big shock, so I said “I had to understand it”, so you replied I spoke so well, and you saw I was a changed person For I was no longer the way I was in the times of old. Would I dare call if you had not done the same? Just grateful, I’m happy you made it happen. But see, now we’re apart And I guess I was the cause. I still couldn’t figure it out, For I thought it was a normal thing. The complete truth, so they say Is not worth telling. Do you believe so? To me, it was all a confusion, I truly had a misperception. I did not know what truth to tell And what truth to hide from you. I knew we would be good friends But did not realize I was lighting a fire, One that I could not blow out from either side. And I would never plot such a deed. Now go to the world, search your love, I’ll stay with mine, and keep what I have. I don't know what destiny awaits both of us Could it be together or forever apart? I’m sure it’s not to die alone; Though everyone might be gone, There’ll always be one To stay by your side and cheer you on. For now, I’ll wait and hear you speak if you will. Will you say the things you used to say again? Of course, I do not expect that, But one favor I have to ask: Treat me in any way I deserve And let me be just a stranger; It was a lesson for you and for me too, Just like the other things we learn every day. Since we’re now apart, Keep doing your best, I’ll do my part. Thanks for everything For the past and for now And for a more million times. Sorry for deceiving your heart, Sorry for breaking your heart And tearing everything we held apart.
