When You Left

I can remember that day

And even today I can’t say

The feelings that lie in my heart

True I wasn’t ready

And yes it’s hard for me to keep it steady

But once my mind became my friend

It was then

I could think of you.

After you left

Long nights

Short days

Forgetful thoughts

And the feeling of being without you

When you left

Was I still here?

But because I love you so

I hold you near

And since you left

I’ve learned: what love truly is

All ways in my heart,
