I’m over you
i never thought that it could happen
once and for all i’m over you
no more will my memories haunt me –
i won’t let them.
now i can speak your name and no
tears fall from my eyes
and if i chance to see you – i can pass you
off as just someone i once knew.
we met, we loved, and now we’ve parted.
i’m not sad-
perhaps if we had met at a later time
things would have been different –
but we met too soon
we weren’t ready for love and now i know
that i wasn’t really ready either or –
else i was too ready.
