Had a thought the other day….

And my mind couldn’t think of the words you used to say….

Nothing lasts forever, even the pain faded into dust and skeletons…

Love not fear now is the only medicine….

I’m walking away from the only life I’ve ever known….

Started to love myself and my old identity forever blown…

It’s true what they say, time heals….

Feelings fading as I let myself feel….

The memories were a long time ago…

But they aren’t all I have or what I know…

And they can’t hurt me anymore….

Your shadows are no longer what I live for…

I ran from you until I found me…

Embracing the pain, tears, and love set this heart free….

Even the worst of nightmares have an end…

I had to let them go in order to mend….

All your power and control locked in the past….

But even time couldn’t make it last….

You disappear in my rear view mirror…

Without you my vision and mind becomes clearer….

I’m thankful for the life I’ve been given….

I love myself and the days I’ve been living….

Nothing lasts forever….

Even the darkest night meets the day…

Took a few years but I know I’ll be okay….
