How I Loved You Then

How I Loved You Then

A sad little take on a Break-Up

 
The shining sun still shines the same
We, smiling, play the older games
And paper over wounds and pain
Knowing neither of us are to blame.
And in the air a hint of rain,
We're heading for a storm again.

Know you were my closest friend and
How I loved you then...

I see it in distracted eyes,
Avoiding rows with sad soft sighs,
Whispered excuses and White Lies,
Creating a space where love can die.
A rumble of thunder in the sky,
Heralding a last goodbye.

Know you were my closest friend and
How I loved you then...

A numbing cold we cannot mend
Or even bother to pretend
That we have not now reached the end,
No garden left to tend...
Strangers now that once were friends,
We find ourselves alone again.

Know you were my closest friend and
How I loved you then...

The days seem longer, stretching out,
No one to laugh with, to love, to shout
At, to touch, to kiss, to think about...
A head full of thoughts but no words in my mouth.
Nothing within, nothing without.
Nothing without you, but fear and doubt...

Know you were my closest friend and
How I loved you then..
