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.
