There are times that I sit and ponder the moments we held hands and smiled to each other. We had our moments, fights and arguments, yet with our backs to the world we created a home in each others arms. In moments of weakness you were the strength while I remained the laughter.
Now I move along more slowly. Running in place on a sandy beach of my own making. I never thought you'd go away, for you were the sun while I sat in the shade. Though the days have passed, fallen leaves now fill the empty spaces where once we slept face to face. Now we packed each other off and pushed open the doors of farewell. Yet I still dream of the days in the past, where the future was just around the bend.
But now I'm moving on. No echoes of sadness, no longer do I stay out of sight. For the wings you clipped on your way out have regrown in respite. I can't seem to say goodbye, for how do you let go of a dream? With time it will fade, along with your smile as the crinkles on our faces deepen. Yet despite it all I have you to thank for helping me find faith, sanity, and reason.
