Sometimes...

Sometimes I check out of this world
Forget the family issues
I pretend I’m just a regular girl
Problems so superficial

Sometimes I look into the mirror
I pretend to love who I see
Sometimes I look through the old photos
I let myself believe you’re still with me

Sometimes I gaze down at my arm
Forget the perfectly aligned scars
Sometimes I look up to the dark
I recall when I allowed myself to see the stars

Sometimes I listen to that song
To which we would dance to like we were crazy
Sometimes I pretend it wasn’t so long
And that the memories were not so hazy

Sometimes in my worst of moments
My mind transports me to that place
Where together we spent hours in the open
A memory I could never bare to erase

Sometimes I peer at the fluffy white snow
Endlessly falling from the sky
I ponder the different life I would have known
If only a stranger you were when you died
