I keep finding myself wide awake in my bed
Thinking whether to give in to the urge
Of letting you back into my life.
I still do miss you on some random days,
And I miss the memory of having you
As the reason I get through another day.
I stare at my phone
Thinking whether I should let your memories
Flood my mind again.
I still wish you’re here with me on lonely days,
And I still imagine the ways I could love you
And all the things you would say.
I read the note I wrote you over and over again,
And I still wonder whether it was right
That I turned my back on you
And chose to let go.
