Did You Ever…?

August 25, 2008
By Megan Hofschulte, Wauwatosa, WI

Did you ever wonder if I felt the same way?
Did you ever practice just exactly what to say?
Did you ever think of my feelings, let alone,
Think of whether or not I could let you go?

Did you ever cry so hard you heard you heart beating?
Did you ever get sick and tired of just believing?
Did you ever make yourself understand
Something that just won’t make sense?

Did anyone ever tell you it wouldn’t last?
Did they say you were taking things way to fast?
Did they say to slow things down and talk,
But every word you heard sounded wrong?

Did you ever ask yourself why?
Did you ever just break-down and cry?
Did you ever want to just let it all go
But know that I’d be the last to know?

Did you ever find the words to say goodbye?
Did you ever think I’d find another guy?
‘Cause I did, and I have, so this is my adieu.
Did you ever think I would leave you?
