I love you

I love you

So I had to let you go

We held each other

then held each other back

Until all that was left of us

Faded to tatters

Like scuffs on our shoes

Like that night we walked, drunk, to Shari’s

I’m sorry I failed you

I failed me too

I’m happier now, are you?

I feel you under these stars

Like the night in the gazebo

We held each other up

Until we dragged each other down

But I will always love you

And miss the best parts we shared

-for J.M.H.
