I still see you in glimpses
Fractures of time in snippets.
Minutes slow down
When I begin to think
When it hits me all over again;
Like a tonne of bricks.
Your presence, still intact
I’m sure of that.
But this is a long story,
I’m not ready to go back.
Searching for answers to what life’s become
Because everything without you is so dull.
How to escape this nightmare
How to continue living in such despair?
I try to take joy within little moments,
To focus on love and not feel broken.
“Open your eyes, dawn is approaching.”
“But this isn’t right, please turn back time.”
Then you say to me,
“Faith is key, focus on what lies ahead, in the end you’ll see what I mean.”
So even when you’ve parted
and this longing has become life;
Let me rejoice in your kindness,
Your love and this heart will always collide.
