You dial his number
But don’t press call
You rode the highs,
So you must fall
Further than you have before
You see his name and feel it form
On reluctant lips
The ghosts of the past still linger
In the feel of him on your fingertips;
A million memories in store.
You see his face and can see
Seconds, minutes, days together
Tangling into a messy little infinity.
Time ticks by, days melting together
Someday you will learn to let it be
Your story began, it came to an end
A thousand different lifetimes did you spend
But darling, there will always be another bend
In the road.
And one day you will wake
On a morning like any other
You’ll see him and it won’t take
Your breath away
Or make your heart flutter
Before it breaks
You’ll see him and smile
And it won’t ache somewhere within
You’ll realise that after a while
It is not a sin
To let go.
