Maybe Someday


His fear is evident; we’ve been waiting so long, and many times we weren’t able to hold on. Our paths, cross and crossed but never seemed to align, no matter how much we searched we could never each other find. Now we’re here face to face but no one knows what choice to make or if we should just let it all fade. But the memories are buried deep inside, and there begging that we don’t let them die. We’ve survived too much to give up now, but the question always remains and that is how. How do we let go of all the scars traced across our hearts, those scars that at night tear us apart. He’s the one I’ve been searching for all this time, not knowing he’s been here all along, tied to the notion that we belong. If only we could let go of all the hurt and all the pain, maybe we could erase our mistakes and finally mend all the heartbreaks. But his fear is evident and there’s not much I can do, except maybe say, I’ve always loved you.
