As I look back on times that have long past, And think about the good times that we shared, I start to realize why it didn’t last: Because we only focused on who cared. It’s hard at first to let the memories go, Sometimes I want to relive everyday, But over time they’ll melt like fallen snow, And happiness will come in different ways. I’ll take delight in someone else’s glance, Allowing light to flood into my life. The butterflies inside me do a dance, No more I’ll be weighed down by all the strife. I cannot wait for what life has in store. My heart wide-open; wings outstretched to soar.
