Even flowers that give the sweetest scent
Must one day wither away.
But will you remember how strong they stood
Before their ultimate decay?
The future seems full of many days
No way to be caught off guard.
Everyone knows time moves too fast
But who knew goodbye would be this hard?
Because wasn't it just yesterday
That the past was so brand new?
Confronting struggles and challenges
Wondering if we'd make it through.
The words that held a ton of weight
The smiles we couldn't stop showing.
Didn't someone tell us then
That it's all a part of growing?
Growing up and forgetting
The feelings we once both felt.
Growing up and wishing
More good times could be dealt.
Like when you reached out to hold my hand
And kiss me on the cheek.
The closeness that we both still crave
Now miles out of reach.
I don't know how to say goodbye
Or how to stop my heart from pounding.
The tears don't fall until all at once
It's almost like I'm drowning.
I'll miss us laughing together
As we'd sit down by the pond.
Maybe one day I'll call you up
And pray to God you respond.
