I Saw You Last

Location

It’s been a while since

I saw you last

I don’t know what you’d say

To me.

I hope you’d be proud

Of me –

But there’s no way to know.

 

Five years since

I saw you last

I think of you often, you know.

I can think of the good things now

And it hurts

Less

But only sometimes.

 

Four years since

I saw you last

And I’m used to the feeling.

I have a life and

You’re not in it.

It hurts. But less than before.

 

Three years since

I saw you last.

I don’t think about you ever y day.

But when I do

It’s mostly sad.

And I don’t like that.

Not at all.

 

Two years since

I saw you last.

I’m learning to move on.

The scars will stay

I’ll keep them there

But the wounds still hurt

For now.

 

One year since

I saw you last.

I still cry all the time.

I’m starting to believe

That you miss me

But sometimes it’s hard to remember that part.

 

Six months since

I saw you last.

I can’t seem to forget it.

No matter where I go, I can’t seem

To find you.

It stings.

But the pain helps me remember.

 

One week since

I saw you last.

I didn’t know back then.

I found out today, and my heart

Just

Died.

Like you did.

Since the time I saw you last.

 

It’s been a while since

I saw you last.

I wonder what you’d say

To me.

Would you apologize for what you did?

Or would you just

Say

Nothing

At all?
