You’re missing from me…


Finally over the slump

And writing once again

Actually feeling better

Sorrows lifting from within


Unsettled for sure

Yet hoping for the best

This year has been

Such an emotional test


Right now I’m thinking of you

And what we once had

Those thoughts remain clear

And make me feel glad


I’m happy for this chance

To figure things out

We just can’t go through life

Having so many doubts


We’ve come so far

To forget what we’ve built

Yet the past is the past

So away with the guilt


Every single day

Which now passes by

Is a chance to restore

A new day to try


We’ve said a million words

Cried a thousand tears

Time to start over

Enjoy the rest of our years


So much determination

Left in both of our hearts

I think it’s about time

For us to finally restart
