You Told Me

I told you I'd wait for you

Told you it didn't matter so long as we would be together.

---

You told me you would be with me always

No matter how far apart we really were.

---

I know I must have laughed then

Despite everything I felt inside.

But your solemn gaze

Stilled my shaking hands,

Quieted my hammering heart.

---

You told me that we'd always

be under the same sky

Same stars, same moon

---

Told me that you needed me to

Stay strong. To believe in you.

Told me you needed me.

---

Trying not to think of what would happen next.

---

I think must have cried then,

As you left.

I don't remember.

---

But now you're gone

And I am here alone.

---

I know I'm crying now.
