all the things you said felt good
at the time but will they again?
what happened to us
it was so perfect for a while there.
you made me feel like no one had ever
made me feel.
it was beautiful, but now itís gone.
i think we were caught up in the feeling
because reality is so hard to face.
but now we have to face it.
so do we pretend like nothing happened
and just go on?
thatís the easy way out.
how easily can you forget
the stars and key west?
iím not sure if i will ever forget.
but i will go on, although it sucks
we never really had anything anyways
not to you, apparently.
i will go on, and have a better life
than you wouldíve given me.
you are nothing and you always will be.
a nothing with beautiful words
and angel wings.
i miss you
there are days that you
are all i can think about
it was three years ago, canít i
get over it?
you were (are) so special to me
and thatís not something i can forget
i was a bad friend. i needed too much.
you gave all you could. i know this.
does that mean it has to be over forever?
i saw you the other day, your smile
was the same, except wiser.
we looked at pictures, you are so
beautiful but i could not speak
i was overwhelmed by
how much of your life iíve missed out on.
can i ever get that back?
please forgive me. i love(d) you.
and i miss you.
