Still believing that somewhere in this world, someone is meant to find me.
Where do you keep someone you love but can never have?
In your mind?
-Where you form images of you being together.
-Daydreaming all day without touching reality.
In your heart?
-Where you reserve a space hoping it will be complete and whole one day.
– Where you can keep that person from the rest of the world,secretly loving, secretly waiting.
In your memories?
-Where you can replay the past and deny the truth about the present and the future.
– Where you can lie to yourself that you have already moved on because memories gives us false hopes that there is one more chance.
But the question should not be where but why. Why do we keep someone we love but can never have?
As seasons pass
Days turn to years
New becomes old
Laughter turns to tears
And as much as we want to let go of the past
It catches up
In unexpected times
In little moments such as feeling the rays of the sun
And reality hits you and you realize that after all that has been unsaid and undone
Love was unchanged
Sometimes it knocks in the corners of your mind
Sometimes it echoes in the melody of a sad song
Sometimes it appears in a misty window after the rain
Sometimes it speaks through a poem read or a movie seen
Sometimes it comes back while watching time go by
It always leaves a scar
It always haunts you in your sleep
It always finds a way to bring tears to your eyes
It always breaks your heart
It always stays even when you want it to go away
and it always reminds me that
I’ve been missing you for so long.

Wishing time would stop
‘Cause one day is not enough
To chase all my dreams
In a hurry, cannot wait
I beg time to be my friend
Silence the sad thoughts
Tomorrow the sun will shine
You will make it through
Hopes are up
Daydreaming of happy endings
Replaying moments so dear
Wishing you’re here
Wanting to start over
Though things won’t be the same
Clouds suddenly disappear
And the sky has your name
Miles apart and now closer
No more daydreaming
No more waiting
Our future aligned
In all the stars
Searching for lost time
Finding me in this journey
Love is within me
It doesn’t fall anymore
My heart has hardened through the years
Things are not the same as before
Goodbye to the love which brought me tears
A long story has come to an end
Facing loss, I finally bid farewell
To the one who can only be a friend
I can only wish you well
Farewell to the summer we once had
I promise to move forward through the seasons
I’ve lost hope when things turned out bad
My heart ran out of reasons—
To continue loving you
On a summer day
In my ordinary life
Four years past today
Our eyes met and said hello
Not knowing past or future
