I was here
You were there
If it was true love
Then how was the distance fair
If two people love each other
Why does destiny keep them away?
Is love really a blessing
Or are we just the Devil’s prey?
“Long distance never lasts”
That’s what they all say
But I wanted to make it work
That’s just all I would pray.
Wanting someone to hold you
Whether you are sad or happy
Instead all you get are “Good Night” texts
No matter your day how good or unhappy.
Seeing someone else stand next to them
Makes you feel like your heart got pierced by a pin.
Birthdays, holidays, special days and anniversaries
Feel incomplete like the “Mac” without its “Cheese”
What exactly hurts
I don’t understand
Is it the unfelt love
Or the miles between us
Or the change in priorities
And the broken promises between us?
The love seems to be fading
Like a cheap, stretchy chewing gum
I gave you many chances and 1000 ultimatums
Remember what we want
May not always be what we need
Don’t take me for granted
Or I’d have to move you away like a garden weed.
I choose you for you
Don’t change yourself
Don’t let our love fade
And let people think our love is dead.
Love me like before
Like I’m yours forever
Don’t need expensive gifts
Just want to see your endeavors.
Give me your time and attention
That’s all I want from you
To make me feel your love, the days I felt blue.
The distance was a lot to make me feel your love
I know you loved me but that wasn’t enough
I just know you loved me but that wasn’t enough.
