2500 Miles

It seems that time must fly
For once I scoffed and said
"Never in a thousand years..."
But here I am. 
I told you once, "forever"
I promised you, "forever"
And yet, forever somehow came to pass. 

I thought I'd never leave my home
I thought I'd never be alone
But now I've crossed these empty lands
And I wonder why I left
And why things had to change. 

Now, I sincerely miss you like hell
And I have nothing,
Not even a hope of hearing you smile.

Starting now, I vow
To never make another promise
Or think about the future
For the things I held so close
Were the first to shatter on the floor.
