Rembering someone who was very close to my heart.

The darkness hasn't left me 

It has to have been years that have gone by 

And the curtain is still sewn shut; 


I try to peek through 

To tear the threads 

To rip it apart 

But the darkness is still too strong; 


The cloud follows me 

And only me 

Making it so hard to go on; 


They say time heals all wounds 

But mine are still bleeding 

They say to remember the good times 

But they're fading away from me; 


Each time I wake up a little more of myself is gone 

A tiny little piece drifting away; 


No more dances 

No more dates 

No more advice on the choices I make; 


I know you're gone 

You can't come back 

But it hurts to miss you 

It hurts to remember; 


But I... I can't let go 

And so the tears keep falling 

One by one 

And each for you
