It’s been so long
I forgot what it was like
But then I met you
And I remembered.

I remembered what it was like to
Smile, have fun, be hopeful.
To feel alive.
To love –
Love life itself
Because you were here.

But you left me. You’re gone.
And so are the smiles, the fun, the hope.
Everything that could’ve been
Now will never be.

Alone, I’m left to hope
That after so long
I will forget what it was like
When you were here
And I won’t
