Acceptance

Days roll by at a snail’s pace
Everywhere I turn I see your wonderful face
I’m sleeping with a dark cloud above my bed
I can’t seem to shake you out of my head
Maybe she’s better for you than me
but I can’t see it…we were meant to be

Each time we kissed,
the ground was a wave

beneath our feet
Didn’t you feel it, too?
My naiveté shines through

Inside my heart,
you won’t find resentment

Our moments we shared
bring me contentment

To win you back,
there’ll be no childish ploy

Into your future,
I only wish you joy
