you left before i got better

you left before i could make things right

you left before things could get really good

and i cant blame you

for getting tired of waiting

for finally getting frustrated

at all the empty times i promised

i would get better-

i did

but you weren’t there to see it

you left just a little too soon

you left before i got better

i am better now

so please.

come back.
