"December afternoons;

I spend them lying in your bed

Trying not to look back on what could have been

And holding your hand,

Head on the pillow in my lap

Sleeping

Soundly

(m y l o v e)

Dog tags pressed against your beating heart

Just like old times,

But we're grown now, bills to pay and

Lives

To

Lead

Amongst promises that never change

(m y h u s b a n d)

Because I know

I'm

Never

Alone and

The day before you doesn't exist

When we kiss.

'Regrets never crossed my mind.'"
