but I’m scared
staring all of my mistakes
in the face
wondering if I’ll make them again
are not a mistake
at least I hope not
but the past is still between us
keeping me from getting closer to you
because distance cannot hold a candle
nor can it erase what is done.
Sometimes I have to grab her hand
and pull her out of the past
because she’ll stay there so long
even I wont be able to see the future.
Staring so hard at all of the things that she wishes she could change
that she doesn’t even see whats been passing her by.
If she hadn’t spent so much time
focused on the past way back then
I think maybe her present
would be so much different now.
I really wish I could show her what she’s missing
but sometimes its hard to take your own advice.
