Your Smile Waves Me Bye

You fill me up

Like a pot of tea

I’m no longer empty

Your hugs and kisses always warm me

Like a fuzzy blanket covering all of me

Your touch against my skin

Sent shivers down my spine

I wanted more

I wanted you to be mine

Your smile waves me bye

And I am swarmed with butterflies

I thought everything was right

But you had a secret that was secretly in sight

It

Start

ed

slow

And you started to let go

Like hanging off the cliff

You let go of the rope

I was left with these questions

Why?

Why?

Why?

My stomach dropped oh so high

Your faded smile waves me bye

And my tears drop to the side.
