 Philosophical Ideas


I don't really cry anymore
Tears have left me just like you

Don't smile as much as I used to
Don't go out much these days
Don't know how to
Make all the pain go away

All I really know for sure is
I don't want my new normal
To be your legacy

Tried so many times to wish you back
Dream you back
Imagine you back here with me

You didn't leave because
Wanted to and there was
Nothing I could have done

Don't want to
Shed anymore tears in your name
Don't want to be sad anymore
Won't be sad anymore

I want to smile when I think of you
Celebrate the life you lived
Go to the places you loved

I accept that you are gone  
I know I will be with you again someday

You were funny, intelligent, and sometimes silly
Beautiful and so perfect to me
I will always be proud of you
I will celebrate you until I see you again
