I wonder how you’ve lived during this time apart.
Did you rise through every challenge life threw at you?
Were there any woman who stood a chance at breaking into your heart?
I stare at you and it’s clear that you grew.
But I’ve always known, even from the start
that staring at you is like gazing at a piece of art.
I could see what the entire world knew,
but I wanted to know more than the view.
Two years apart
and you still have a place in my heart.
I still have those “what if” thoughts about you.
What if this could have been more than a screw?
Now here we are again, apart.
I leave with the same feelings in my heart.
But, truly, thank you.
You probably never knew,
that pieces of you helped me change my view.
I hope you continue to grow.
Maybe one day we’ll know…
