Staring out the window


Five Words: [ HARM – DEEP – ACT – STARE – LOSS ]

I miss you as I stare out the window
What we had was wonderful and now gone
The loss was deep, you’re no longer my beau
Acting as if nothing and all bygone
My soul’s sincerely harm hither and yon
One day I will be able to move on
Let me just mourn the loss as hereupon
I’ll look at it like the beauty of dawn
I’ll be alright and to the world I show
And that there was us a long time ago*
