my past comes back in waves
from a former love in my life
he’s the one that got away
the one that still holds my heart
the one I can never replace
but he is happy now
in the arms of another
and knowing he is doing well
has become enough for me
to wish him well and close the page
on that chapter of my history
with little regret
and lots of fond memories
for the man who blessed my life
