.

I am perfectly willing to acknowledge

That the sun is still as bright

But it doesn't feel as warm

It doesn't seem quite right

.

I am perfectly willing to acknowledge

That the coffee tastes the same

But the flavor does not satisfy

As much as yesterday

.

I am perfectly willing to acknowledge

That my house did not grow a size

But it feels so big and empty

When I walk the hall at night

.

I am perfectly willing to acknowledge

That the only thing amiss

Is that you are no longer here

That is why I feel like this

.

I am perfectly willing to acknowledge

That missing you won't help

It will not bring you back to me

Or the happiness I felt

.

I am perfectly willing to acknowledge

That I need to get up and move on

But when I try to leave the house

I stop before I get a single shoe on

.

I am perfectly willing to acknowledge

That I might need a hand

To help back onto my feet

As I lack the strength to stand

.

I am perfectly willing to acknowledge

That you aren't perfect, and never were

But memory is deceptive

So when I think, I can't be sure

.

I am perfectly willing to acknowledge

But still I hate the sound

Of all the memories and the wishes

That from my lips abound

.

I am perfectly willing to acknowledge

But so unwilling to forget

For allowing you to get away

Is something I regret.
