Did you hear them say it stops hurting?
That if you just walk away from her
Eventually, with some time,
It will all just go away?
You’ll forget the way she talked
The way she mispronounced your mothers name
Which you knew was on purpose
But never said anything.
You’ll forget the night you spent talking
Until the sun came up the next day
Then she told you she wanted to go fishing
And both of you fell asleep that afternoon in your truck.
You’ll forget she moved so far away
From everything she knew
Because she wanted to be with you
Started a new life
In a new place
By your side.
You’ll forget that time you lost your ring
So she threw hers in the water too
So they could both be lost
You’ll forget nervously asking her to marry you
Because you couldn’t imagine spending a day without her
And she said so many times
How cool it would be
If she had your last name.
You’ll forget all about how you loved her.
Today just isn’t that day.
