Fading

We edge further and further away
Ebbing, drifting on distant waves
Different currents, pulling us our separate ways

It would happen in due course
Of course! Like many things do
Though I still move on, each brand new morn'
Still holding onto feelings for you

Months have passed slow, an age
But I'm a butterfly through metamorphosis
And I begin to see the change

You're almost a distant thought now
Just a wisp of smoke
A pleasant but fading dream
Where things were more than they ever seemed

A glimpse rekindles hope, a little spark
Embers warm inside my heart
As you really left your mark

But your part has now reached its inevitable end
For that chapter's closed and done
You made the past seem so sunny and bright
Now, fading like dusk's last light
