It’s been five years,
Five years since you walked out of my life,
Five years of heartache,
Five years since you crushed my heart into small equal pieces,
I have borne this pain for five freaking years.
I gave you my heart,
I loved you the best I knew how,
Gave you all you wanted and needed,
Gave up my friends for you,
Spent every minute I could with you.
I thought we were fine,
Everything was going on smooth,
Our love was at the crest,
We were happy or so it seemed.
Then one day you dropped by,
Said that you had had enough of me,
That you had suddenly realized,
I was not good enough for you.
I begged you not to say it,
But you said it anyway,
You smiled when you saw my tears drop,
Then you walked away without looking back.
“It’s over my love,
I’m sorry I did not realize it earlier,
I know we were doing good but,
You aren’t one for me,
Sorry I wasted your time,
But baby, IT’S OVER!”
Now it’s my turn to be sorry,
Sorry I can’t take you back,
Sorry you were and still are
The greatest love of my life,
Sorry that I have never gotten over you.
But now my heart is mine,
I gave it to you once,
You did not think twice while breaking it,
And now you beg to come back?
To grind the pieces you left?
“Baby I’m so sorry,
I should not have left you,
I have realized you are the love of my life,
I will never love anyone else like I do you,
It’s been five years yes,
But I’m still in love with you.
I love you too,
I too will never love anyone else the way I loved you,
You were my world,
But you broke it and can’t fix it,
I’m afraid it’s too late for us.
