I fell in love with you but you didn’t
So that was an opportunity we both lost.
You fell in love with someone,
I got hurt and bruised.
Eventually I moved on and so did you,
But you broke that person’s heart because you found someone new.
Soon after your new love moved on without you
And we lost touch,
I didn’t dare ask how you have been doing
For fear you might think I’m still hoping for so much.
Our paths once crossed but it seems it will never again
You and I, we try to avoid each other it seems.
Our story ends here
Or it may be a to be continued when we’re different people in a different life.
When I finally let you go
I found peace of mind.
I found a peace within me where once there were numerous questions.
My tears have found peace
And most tears I cry now are for joy.
Where I used to have a knot for fear of not being with you,
I am now able to breathe easily.
I found peace the moment I let you go.
When I realised you were the chaos
I was able to appreciate the silence.
I am now at peace with myself
And you are now just a lesson on an old page in my book.
My coffee has gone cold waiting for me.
In this cold morning, my coffee is colder still.
Much like your cold heart
Who left me lying on the cold floor
With my heart held in my cold hands.
And yet, I still drink my bitter cold coffee
As I toast the cold morning air
Remembering that from your coldness
I learned to embrace the warmth of my own sunshine.
You caught me by surprise and I didn’t know any better
There was peace in your eyes
And I knew
You were happier
I cried when you broke my heart and you didn’t evem know
But that was in the past
You are just a past and
I will cry no more
I no longer look at you like the way I used to
I no longer try to impress you or get your attention
I move just as the way I used to
I look at you and see, I see nothing there
I’m letting it all go
I will move on and away
Thank you for the lesson
Slowly, I let you go
Slowly, I accept
Slowly, I begin to know
Slowly, I tell myself that just like before I will be alright
Slowly, I come to terms…
…that I am to walk this earth on my own
Partly sunny, partly cloudy
Partly sad and partly happy
Part of me taken by you
Partly why the weather is blue
Part of me loved you
Part of me didn’t want to let go
Partly cheery, partly gray
Part of you never wanted to stay
Partly awful, partly beautiful
The part of me that wanted to be cheerful
Part of it was dead and gone
So I let go
And now the whole of me happily walks under the sun
I told myself I’m fine
Pretended to be okay
But seeing him was torture
And I didn’t like it, no way
He was happy, I was not
But I didn’t like the bitterness
I wanted to let go
And enjoy my own sweetness
When you’ve gotten your heart broken
It feels your whole world has been taken
Taken away right before your eyes
You don’t even get to say your goodbyes
But when the dust settles
You’ll find out, everything is alright
