I know I’m late, really late but Happy B’day 🙂
Even if I have to piece back together
The thousand shards of this broken picture of us,
Because I can’t remember
The last night I saw you
Or even the last time daylight streamed onto your face
Even though you were right in front of me.
I can’t remember
And I dearly want to.
I grasp on to the thoughts of you that I do remember
The simple and the complex
And all of them leave me with the feeling
Of a deep and resounding earthquake in my mind
That has me wondering why I’d ever let you go.
It has me wishing that I’d grown faster,
That I’d have realised what I realise now.
So I promise to myself that i will do all I can
To right all the wrongs.
Somehow and someway I will fix this.
If I find myself in front of you again
I promise I will choke out the words,
Because I’ll need them,
But not on paper or a screen.
And I hope you’ll listen then
Because listening’s the best thing you do
And I’ve always loved you for that.
