I know you were so long ago.
I tried to leave, to let you go.
I thought I did, but now I know I failed.
I saw you with her, standing there -
A smile, a blush, a loving stare.
A stranger now, who’s walking his own trail.
I knew you wouldn’t wait for me.
We both moved on, were once more free.
But something deep inside my heart still yearns,
For though it’s many months ago,
There beats a memory far below,
A sliver left of love that never learns.
