How can I explain the things I've done?
How can I let myself do what I do?
I can't stop thinking about you, though I don't know why.
I can't stop checking if you're safe.
Why can't I just let you go?
Why must my heart still beat your name?
I see your face and my eyes water.
I look at the pictures of us and my breath catches.
Why can't I live by that saying by Dr. Seuss?
"Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened."
Why must my heart break from the happiness that you brought me?
I'm sorry I didn't cherish you as I should have,
Or show you the love in my heart.
I'm sorry if we went too fast,
And I'm sorry that our time has passed.
I know you won't hear this plea,
But maybe some day, together again we can be.
