You weren’t an easy goodbye,

But we agreed to disagree,

And knew being apart is how we’ll heal.


I close my eyes and it seems like ages ago

But you know I can still read your mind,

like it was just the day before.


I think of you and smile,

knowing that once upon a time,

You were mine.


I look at you and realise

I did something right.

You weren’t an easy goodbye.

And, though, apart we had to drift,

Our journey was a beautiful gift.

Found You

I found you.

When I sat by myself, introspecting,

You were in the reflection of the glass that I was holding.

When I walked the distance in solitary,

You were in the shadow that kept me company.

When the noise all around became overwhelming,

You were the voice in my head that got me going.

 

It was surprisingly easy to spot you in all the hullabaloo,

Once I knew what I was looking for was you.

You’re my confidence, the best part of me.

And against all odds, I found you in me.

Memory Lane

When I’ll look back at my life and see you standing next to me, I’ll know I was loved.

And with a smile, I’ll go back to where it all began and find myself all over again, without you.

I’ll feel the places one more time, and let in what I was then too blinded to find.

I’ll trudge the roads that I once measured by how soon they led to you, till they become the paths that I walk to re-discover myself.

There’ll be a faint remembrance in everything I’ll lay my eyes on;

And a fleeting warmth of your presence in the familiar terrains;

But I won’t stop, till I solve my quest to find the best of me.

Because I know I was loved, and you had a piece of me, but I want to get back all of me.
