I am forever grateful your love was mine to lose,
For I still love you.
And you’re in Boston
And I’m okay
Thank you for that
For what words can never give their due.
I am sorry I didn’t get to know you better
That I didn’t listen more,
Didn’t implore your beautiful heart to open all the way,
Didn’t give you the safety to
And my heart breaks remembering all the times I made you cry and my heart didn’t bat an eye.
I know you were a very important part of my life;
You are a huge piece of what makes me whole.
And I was toxic to you.
But I hope you have a piece of solace in me, some quiet comfort in what was and what will be
I just can’t believe it all
We were just kids, really
Okay, maybe just me
But we were still growing up
We still are.
And I don’t know what closure looks like for us
How to heal the wounds we made
But I think it has something to do with time and age
I just can’t believe that this is all there is
I just wish there were an easy way to let go
It’s almost as if I am asking for your help
What ending can we write?
Or is this it?
Tell me what I can do
I owe it to you
For what words can never give their due
