It’s been a while since I saw that smile on your face,
The one that used to reach your eyes
And light ’em up like the 4th of July fireworks.
It seems as though all the reasons why I was the one
Suddenly become the reasons why now, I wasn’t.
Even though you were my happiness
I failed to make myself, yours,
Though you were my world
I couldn’t be farther from yours.
When did the distance become so much?
When did you cringe at the sound of my voice?
When did it become a chore to call me?
I tried but I’m sorry baby, to have pushed you this far.
Some days it seems like you’re better off without me,
Without all the drama I come with,
But most days, I let myself be selfish
Because I know that if you leave,
So would all the warmth and safety leave,
And I’m not ready to live in a cold world without your fire to keep me warm.
Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth. Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life.
