Once You Were

I am standing here
Only two feet from you
When did you become
Such an expert at this

And you don’t see me
From behind your wall
And you’re not near me
No, not at all

And I am waiting
Patiently
I am waiting
But I don’t know for how long

You used to know me well
And I thought I did know you
But I am always wrong
About what I think ‘bout you

And I am lying
When I say
I’m not hurting
I’m okay

And I’ve forgiven
Redundantly
I’ve forgiven
But I will never forget

You have just moved on
And I am happy for you
Hope you’re satisfied
With the exception of me

And I’m not angry
At what you’ve done
But I am empty
Because you’re gone

And I’m still waiting
Patiently
I’m still waiting
But I don’t know for how long

I wish you the best
I hope you are happy
I hope you see success
Because you live fully

And I am stronger
Because of you
And I’ll try harder
To move on, too

I’ve still forgiven
Redundantly
I’ve still forgiven
But I will never forget

I am standing here
Only two feet from you
When did you become
Such an expert…
