Days and days go by
Weeks and weeks past
Still hurt by what has passed
A life that I can never get back

Mistakes are made
that are hard to face
But at the end of the day
I still feel the same way

regretful yet grateful
sadness but relief
everything just ties into how the future is seen
something I know, just wasn't for me

unexpected surprise
More like a goodbye
to the blessing He made
Then had taken away

you live and you learn
Yet still can't return
To the once innocence self
whom was taken by felt

just a certain of months is all it would take
to see come face to face with what I once considered a mistake

I'm sorry to say I cry each day
for the acceptance of letting you go
due to my selfish ways
