This heart beats an unsteady rhythm
When it remembers the joy I once had
Giving a flower to someone who made me glad
This body remembers the tears that fell
When I grieved the loss of losing you
And discovered what about you wasn’t true
I thought I knew.
This soul remembers the agony that came
When promises were broken you once made
To a child who ended up feeling so afraid
You’d throw her away.
This mind remembers the darkness that fell
When I lost my faith in the goodness of me
And you destroyed what I thought I could be
If given a chance.
This part remembers you broke me in half
And never cried a tear and then you were gone.
You never looked back for you had moved on
Leaving me behind, to grieve.
