Four Letter Words...
So close yet you feel so distant.
Do my words travel far enough for you to know?
The following dawn breaks in closer.
As tomorrow we started to realize.
All the pressure forced upon your heart.
Fades away in that moment you let go.
It's okay to be a little selfish.
There's still many reasons to stay.
We think about you this day.
The wounds we share, I know they'll heal.
It's okay to admit I'm hurt.
Still, I won't let this break us apart.
It's hard to smile while leaving you behind.
Each day feels so hollow.
But the feelings I hold, they will never change.
If I had just one more 'last chance.'
I'd make it so I'd better myself for you.
Look to the mirror and smile.
Because I'm reminded of you.
I'm a part of you and will forever be.
As the days turn to years.
The memories of you will remain eternal.
In the hearts of those whose lives you've touched.
