It’s the pain of not knowing that hurts the most.
When at one time I thought we were so close.
I still have this need to protect you.
Even though whatever we had went askew.
You thought that you were the cause of my stress.
But it’s really not knowing that causes my distress.
I fear for your future and your peace of mind.
There is nothing I can do my hands are tied.
I don’t know if I will ever speak to you again.
It is so hard to take I thought we’d always be friends.
I can totally understand why you need to move on.
But the way that you did it leaves me with this dreaded longing.
I just want it to go away.
It only will if I know you’re ok.
How long should I wait for some word to come?
All this not knowing is making me numb.
What can I do so that I just forget?
How could I possibly forget my most favorite pet?
Pray for your happiness is all I can do.
And hope that she never ever has a clue.
I am scared for you but I feel so helpless.
If you are alright I can only guess.
Why do I care because you don’t feel the same?
You keep yourself hidden it is such a shame.
Deep in my heart I just can’t think we’re through.
Even though I know I may never again see you.
I won’t even try to hold you to your word.
Even though “I’m yours always” is what I heard.
You could break my heart a thousand times.
But I will never forget that you were once mine.
