Alone I sit and face the day
Knowing you aren't far away
Your silence screaming in my head
And once again to an empty bed.
What went wrong I'll never know
What you feel you'll never show
So we go on with this masquerade
Dealing with mistakes we've made.
I've learned the lesson very well
And I promise not a soul to tell
Inside I know I must contend
With keeping you just as a friend.
This is enough, I will accept
I'm not afraid to feel bereft
But thank you kindly for this stake
And know my heart is to forsake.
The memories now are locked in tight
The feelings will change - with a fight
I have my friend back, my fears erased
The road to serenity clearly pathed.
