For everything I forgot to say to you
Every moment I missed out on
For every touch I never got
Every line you had drawn.
Every kiss I brushed past
Every word I never wrote
Every message I received
Every plan, never followed through.
I told you long ago I would be happy
With any part of you I could have
Now it seems as if I cannot have any
As you have split our lives in half.
I carry no anger towards you
I care for you too much.
My mouth may be saying the words
But my heart still carries your touch.
You may change the physical distance
Keep your heart at bay,
But I’m not the kind of woman that wavers,
I just don’t live my life that way.
Although I may speak the words
My mind may agree,
You will always carry with you
A very special part of me.
