Picking piece by piece,
Struggling hard to put the words together,
Struggling hard to hold the tears back.
Your letters. Our letters.
Tore them into pieces,
Promising to never think of you again.
And here I am putting them back,
Smiling and crying at all the love we shared.
The fights seem so silly now.
The love so true.
You promised me you’ll never let me go,
Then how did I lose u?
Where do I begin and where do I end
Seems like we lived a lifetime in those few days.
We started as friends, then u stole my heart,
And then we began our chase.
I was all yours from day one,
But I didn’t let you know.
We had our fights and our fun,
You took me high and took me low.
We had to fight and make up once a day,
You would call me an idiot and I would call you names.
I would cry all day and think I’ll make you pay,
But then, you’d say, “Hey, Are u ok?”
And, that was enough to melt my heart,
Drag me all the way back to the start.
We don’t know how and when it began,
But, we were in love and had lost our hearts.
You told me I was beautiful,
And had no reason to be insecure.
I asked you to open up and trust me,
And we promised we will be true.
I wrote you love songs,
We loved and laughed our days away.
You wondered why I loved you so,
I told you, you were the best, my life, and you made me sway.
My heart would skip a beat when you entered the room,
One smile from you and I would be ready to swoon.
I would wait for the crowd to leave,
So, we could have a few moments with each other.
To hold hands and talk,
We knew we couldn’t live without one another.
You were there for me when I needed you.
Said the right things, helped me through.
Held me tight, told me the days would get better.
We had each other, and that’s what mattered.
But, then one day, life came in the way.
We couldn’t make up after our fights,
You called me names that scarred me,
And I couldn’t see the light.
We left so much unsaid.
The songs I sang for you broke my heart.
My heart skipped a beat with the thought of seeing you,
But not because of yearning, but because I wanted to part.
I went through hell and back.
When I heard you telling people about us.
You shared our stories, our moments,
And I still thought you were the one I could trust.
I force myself to listen to our songs,
Sometimes I smile, sometimes I breakdown and cry.
I know it’s going to take me long,
But, god knows I am going to try.
I fought for our love,
As long as I could do.
But, our love is like a shipwreck with nothing to salvage,
And all I am left with, are memories of u.
We don’t speak anymore,
The days I see you are few.
I don’t want to know the man u have become,
But I will always love the boy I knew.
