Fading Heartbreak


For so long I wanted to hold on to your light

So I imagined that dream I longed to reignite

But over time I have grown

Better to brighten the light on my own

For I felt a kind of love, connected to part of your soul

But it soon faded, as you returned to your real goal

The moments and laughter that we shared

Led me to believe you deeply cared

But was it all a bit of a game?

Still, I can’t walk away in shame

My intentions were so true

And my heart was left quite blue

But I have worked to rise above

There is more than one path for love
