The time in the day I count away,

no adding or subtracting it just one whole day.

I spend thinking imagining my everafter on you,

Should have never gotten so attached to another person,

Barely even knew you and you’ve made the hours go faster,

minutes seem slower and the seconds forever.

Tears dry on their own, smiles shine with forgiveness,

and worry hurts use all.

Another day, month, or year will never be enough,

just within one split second the world is different to me.

It was never about trust, honesty, loyalty, but about time,

the time it took to become committed to one another.

Speak now, oh please you have the chance making me wait doesn’t help,

it hurts more not knowing what’s right or wrong, who's to blame for this.

Only my time got taken even after it was over...
