Bittersweet Times

If you were here with me tonight
With arms wide open, I’d hold you tight
I swear I’d never let you go again
Your touch is smooth but burns my skin.
The mention of your name brings joy and pain
Oh how I wish I’d changed my life for you to gain.
Thoughts of you won’t leave my mind
Remind me what we left in timebitter
The lonely nights I spend in sorrow
The roads we walk are way too narrow
This heart is fragile, about to break
I give and give, you take and take.
Was this not who we’re meant to be?
Like a bird you fly so free,
No need to grant apologies,
I just wish that it was me.
