Mentor

Mentor by Michelle Angeles

 

Changes and mistakes, where are we now

So far from where we started out

I can’t remember how we began

 

Your actions hurt me unintentionally

I thought you loved me unconditionally

But then you left and I was alone

 

Life isn't the same

but it’s meant to change

I go on but it's is gone with the wind

Our light is now dimmed

 

Closed eyes, now I realize

I've been ignoring the fact that you were alive

Wish we could go back to the time

When everything was fine

 

I cry and wail as your lowered in the dirt

Without you here I’d get myself hurt

I see the good times, see them with you

 

I miss the old times, can we just go back?

All I know now is that you were what I lacked

I'm still convinced that I'll wake up to see you

 

How can I let go when I know that deep down you aren't there?

All the problems flying in my mind, it's not fair

I can't see you anymore, but how can I forgive and forget?

 

I shouldn't have looked at you, how I can't hide

As you turned into a thing I can barely recognize

Wish you could change back and smile,

That’ll last for a while

 

Pause this game, I hate the change

I hold on because you made me feel estranged

Why couldn't we just stay the same

 

Closed eyes, now I realize

I've been ignoring the fact that you were alive

Wish we could go back to the time

When everything was fine

 

Will I ever be fine?
