My blue eyes fade to grey
As memories just pass away.
I glide through the times we've spent
Even to the bitter end.
Again and again I wish I was okay,
But I know I'll miss you either way.
I take my pain and take my hurt
And walk away, tears hitting the dirt.
Head down, I walk the path of life,
Again alone, but that must suffice.
Love, it only runs so deep
Before the wounds start to seep.
Love, it reads my incompetence
And tortures me for forgotten sins.
Love, it drains the heart of feeling
And with that, stops the heart from healing.
Love, it comes with a solid hate
For anyone my heart to take.
If only we still could be
Together, simply blissfully.
But that is not the case,
So make haste! Make haste!
I cannot wait for the world to fall
To try to claim one for my all.
Until the day I recompense
For the insignificance
Of the feeling of my heart,
For it is torn apart.
Here I am, walking away,
Head down, paving the way.
The pieces of my broken heart
In my hands, they lie apart.
Sentimental words of emotion
Have been spoken; Have been spoken.
Whispered words of the past
Come to haunt me, at last.
Regretting now and forevermore
The way our emotions poured.
I almost undeniably regret
The day that we had ever met.
But in this broken heart of mine,
I know and I realize
What I say and what I mean
Are two completely different things.
I love you for every moment we spent
Together, just lying in bed.
I love you for every memory
We have, between you and me.
I love you for what you have taught,
Whether bad or good, it matters naught.
I love you for what you have told
Even when I thought it was old.
Until next time, we make our separate ways.
I love you for ever and for always.
I wish it didn't have to happen like this
But just take this one last kiss.
Take your journey and be on your way,
For today is a completely new day
And with it holds new possibilities,
So we may create our new destinies.
