Poem – Not This Time



Our days were written in the stars
But today
I just need time
Time I don’t want to lose
Because losing you is not the answer
But today
It seems darker than ever
Without you here with me
I mumble and scream
Things I need to say
But today
The words get caught
Caught deep down inside
Where tomorrow holds the key
But today
Keeps moving on
Through the dust and dusk
And the cold nights where love is hard to find
Because today
I’m missing you again
Guess some memories will have to get me through
Instead of holding you when I’m just too far away
And there’s no way I’m giving up this time
