Flashback to the day when we first met
It is surely one i’ll never forget
From the spot where you sat, under the great oak tree,
To welcoming smile you gave to me.
The closer we grew, as the ‘tomorrows’ flew by
Day by day, it started becoming just you and I.
Together with each other, we both shared so much
Laughter, sadness, experiences and such.
The sun beamed so brightly these days
But without notice, the skies they turned to grey.
A love that appeared like those beautiful, everlasting fairytales
Instead, turned to a relationship full of thorns and nails.
To my dismay, you were sucked into the wrong crowd
What was once you and I, was hidden behind a huge nimbus cloud.
Whatever was left, was quickly swirling down the drain
And in the end, you and I were both left in pain.
But because I love you, I endured
Through the pins and needles of your hurtful words,
And all the excuses you made, yes it was all I heard
And yet, my love did not go blurred, instead it was undeterred.
But because I love you, I stayed
Struggles and mistakes, one after the other for you I prayed.
And even when we began to fade,
I still remained, unafraid.
Because I love you, I believed
That from each other it was joy we both once received.
While others may say, “Poor girl, she’s so naive”
I push them away, those thoughts I seized.
The idea of quitting, oh wow, that was hard for you to decide.
But as seasons went by, cravings and addictions, you finally waved good bye.
It was difficult for you to comply,
But because you love me, you tried.
Yet, I won’t forget what you said to me that night
You took me by the hand, and we stood under the moonlight.
You said you had a gift that was on it’s way.
And I realized what you meant when I didn’t see you the next day.
