You left so many years ago
I thought the time could never be restored
The years changed us. The years let go.
I believed we’d always be strangers passing and more
You returned for a bit
I thought maybe a relationship could grow
The days changed us. The days in our heart lit.
I believed we’d not restore years but maybe a new life we’d know
Then you left again, maybe this time forever
I thought things could be different, an alteration from things destined
The moment changed us. The moment of surprise severed.
I believed it could be new but now your old self may win
I can not determine what may come
I will pray it’s not what I feel and what I see
I do not know what tomorrow will sum
I will hold to hope and believe safe and secure is where you will be
