The memory of you ebbs and flows,
The space you once held remains open,
No one can fill it, no one can try,
I’m just stuck here, with that empty space,
I have the memories that shine with nostalgia,
They taste bittersweet, not always going down smooth,
I’ve moved on, in part,
But there’s still a piece of me waiting for you,
Waiting for a word, a sighting, anything,
When I’m at my lowest, I always hope you’ll appear,
But you don’t, you can’t be what I need,
Not anymore, you’re destined to be something else.
You’re the faint sound of the wind, a sound or smell, clear only to me.
What could’ve been, a thought always present in my mind,
I’ll never forget you, as a part of you is within me,
I’ll remember you as you were when I was young,
When the whole world was before me and I had you.
I wish I had known how important our time was.
Now that I know, I wish now for nothing but time…
