moving forward

Why is it no matter how happy and how far ive come my mind always lingers on the thoughts of you....
I always believed that one day I'd forget you. 
Forget me and you. 
But I'm stumbling.  
Once upon a time you loved me and I loved you back.
Tell me who we are now. 
Not the same. 
But bound by the memories of what once was. 
I can no longer say that I love you. 
Sadly I still love the memory of you.
You're not the one I first met.  
The one who swept me off my feet. 
You're now the one who took the world from me and laughed. 
But still I can't help looking back. 
Time lapses and we move forward.  
But will we ever completely move on.
I'm afraid to say the truth is it'll never happen...
