If I close my eyes long enough
It’s as if you never existed
Another premature occurrence
A fleeting flash gone by in instant

You used to be so sweet
Told me things I wanted to hear
But for a while I sensed your withholding
Bringing to the surface a sense of fear

You were an almost but not yet
Another what if and could have been
How I wish you could have been mine
But the wheels were just too quick to spin

How could you have said, “I love you”
Say the best you’ve finally found
Does that not hold ground anymore?
Were those words that easy to throw around?

Maybe you were just lonely
And the truth is I was lonely too
But for a while I was consumed
With hopeful thoughts and dreams of you

Sometimes I’m stricken by pain and regret
A pang of sadness for our stars that don’t align
But my darling, I’m reminded that it’s not possible
To lose something that was never truly mine
