In A Year

Last year

They told us everything would be different

Our friendships, relationships, and lifestyle.

We never believed it.


Last year

My dad and I used to talk every day

Now he has a new family and he seems happy

He forgot my birthday but i didnt say anything.


Last year

My boyfriend and I were talking about forever

Now we are just friends with feelings

So I fake smiles and small talk.


Last year

It was a normal night at work

Then I was pulled into the office for a phone call

My father-in-law had a heart attack and was in the hospital 

Little did we know he had a serious heart condition.


Last year

My friendships, relationships, and lifestyle 

were completely different


Never knew so much could happen; 

In a year.
