Change

We are no longer who we used to be,
things are no longer the same,
Struggling to recognize one another with all the scars,
after saying words we can’t forgive
and actions leading to wounds that won’t heal.

We are no longer who we used to be,
we no longer feel the same,
I’m struggling to get you from ‘afraid to trust’
and back to ‘this could be the one’.
because somewhere between good intentions
and bad decisions I made you not feel enough.

We are no longer who we used to be,
and I feel it’s partly my fault
because my love is still the same.
So all can’t be lost,
and you can’t be gone
because I can accept change,
just not if it means you’re no longer mine.
