Missing you is not enough
And all I have
I fight the tug-of-war
Within my soul
To keep you here
And try to make this right
When I know it won’t ever
Make us whole
When I know it’s too late
To even fight
We can bury who we were
And place a marker
We can say a prayer
And walk away
We can go about our lives
Like it was nothing
That doesn’t mean
I don’t want you to stay
Already you become
A stranger to me
Already I am different
To your eyes
I am changing
You are changing
And it’s hurting
Though I guess it all
Should come as no surprise
Missing you is not enough
And all I have
One day you say
You hope we can be friends
I don’t know how to
Make you not a stranger
Or how to make this ending
Not the end
I feel this tug-of-war inside me
You think I am complacent
When we meet
Instead I am trying
Simply to remain standing
When I want to fall again
Right at your feet
Even though I know
Inside my soul
That loving you again
Won’t make us whole.
