The One That Got Away

by Dominic Ignacio | shared on He Said, She Said |

You may not be my first, you may not be my last
But you will always be in my heart.
You’re the reason behind every successful things in my life
That I promised you way back when things didn’t fall apart.

I will always remember the day you made me smile
I will always remember those days when tears fell at night
The laughter and memories we brought in every mile
Will always remind me to stand up and be ready to fight

Every hardship and difficulty that made me shatter
But still manage to grow and rebuild the broken pieces of a castle
Those lessons that I’d learned when we were together
Will still be with me until forever

Through the brightest day to the darkest night
I will always bring the candle with me that shines in my life
Entering a new door, a new story, a new chapter of my life
I wish that we would fly gracefully like a kite

Thanks for the days, weeks, months, years, and every minute of my existence
Those things we shared will always be the best experiences
I just wanted you to be happy even if that happiness doesn’t include me
You will always be the one who made me crazy

Now I let you fly like a bird
And I’ll be the wind that will always be there ready to observe
Letting you go doesn’t mean forgeting you girl
I just can’t let you be here even it makes my heart twirl

I may not be your lover but I can be your friend
I may not be the one you’d like to be with till the end
But I can be as what we were in the past and accomplish those promises that I made
Cause those things that happened yesterday won’t easily fade.
