Timing the distance

FOR YOU,  WHO IS SO FAR AWAY

split across the ocean’s rim
four thousand miles supreme
joined together by sheer will power
growing like a flames that’ll never falter

whatever lines distance draw
time will cover with tides
like sands and waves, sides by side

these feelings inside
residing endlessly in my mind
touching my heart and soul like burning fire
igniting dreams, wondering what the future brings
keeping a smile as i think of you even when i’m asleep

i cannot lie to myself
there are time i miss you, sad
misunderstanding arises and then
heartaches and panic that flutters like hell

as the distance grow
the debris floating in between
time shelters the broken pieces

these feelings inside
residing endlessly in my mind
touching my heart and soul like burning fire
igniting dreams, wondering what the future brings
keeping a smile as i think of you even when i’m asleep

you’re the first thing i wake up to
you’re the last thing i see when i close my eyes
time will only create more memories to be laid
and we’ll both be made whole again

these feelings inside
residing endlessly in my mind
touching my heart and soul like burning fire
igniting dreams, wondering what the future brings
keeping a smile as i think of you even when i’m asleep

these feelings inside
resting peacefully in my mind
the memories we share i hold on tight
giving me life as i breathe through life without you by my side
keeping a smile as i think of you even as i sleep

i await the day to meet you again
to make our dreams our reality

Walking Away

I remember it was raining on that day
you turned you back to me and stepped away
pushed me with those hands, those trembling fingers of yours
you looked down and avoided my gaze
as though you were ashamed

before i could say another word, you turned your back and walked away

what happened? where did we go wrong?
all those happy memories of smiles and laughter drifting in my consciousness
do they mean nothing anymore?
what happened? where did we go wrong?
even through those rough bumps of our lives together, when we held strong
can we no longer be together?

i checked my cell, waiting for a call
what happened that day, i know it’s no ones fault
i was young, and i’m always wrong
can’t put aside my pride and resign
even as i’m singing this song

before you could say another word, i turned my back and walked away

what happened? where did we go wrong?
all those happy moments of smiles and laughter drifting in my dreams
do they still mean something in me?
what happened? where did we go wrong?
even through those painful tears of our lives together, when we hugged each other
can we no longer be together?

crawling at my heart, eating at my soul
being apart is stopping every single one of my breath
holding on, not letting go
may be the hardest thing that i’ve come to know
even if you come to forget, as long as there are no regrets

what happened? where did we go wrong?
can we mean nothing anymore?

are we meant leave here and walk on?
