Half-heartedly

I am seeing everything,
I knew well yesterday,
Through a different way.

Quietly, and timidly,
I reminisce,
Everything I miss.

Because when everything’s perfect,
You’ll never expect,
The one you trust most, to neglect,

Everything that used to be,
Everything that I have learned,
And I’ll forever yearn,

But it’s perished,
So cherish,

That I will carry on,
With nothing half-heartedly,
Cause every action has helped me see.

Life will go on,
Just hanging on casually,
No one will remember what I did so naively.

No one will let a tear fall,
From their solemn eyes,
And baby, please look now, we’re the only ones who’ll cry!

But it’s perished,
So cherish,

That I will carry on,
With nothing half-heartedly,
Cause ever action has helped me see.

There’s only a,
50-50 chance,
That we can once more dance.

But I don’t care how long it will take,
And I am not one to sit back and let fate go,
Because we can change it, you know.

But every chance is complete,
So now all there is to be,
Is anything but half-heartedly.

I will carry on,
With nothing half-heartedly,
‘Cause everything you said has changed me.

So look through,
The mirror,
See what couldn’t be clearer…
