The universe is always on our side.
Even though she forces us to go through ups and downs
Crying and shouting
Until we feel calmer inside.
I wonder how I can't move on
And it hits me that I will always love you
All my life.
Even though I can't hold your hand
Or guide you the way i want
The occasional hug and smile
Keeps me alive.
Don't get me wrong, to myself i am more kind
And since January of '18 I have had to
Learn that by and by
But instead of tricking myself that
I meant nothing to you
And that you love the new girl more than you ever loved me
I can replay the great memories in my mind
And with happiness I cry.
Today I wanted to scream I LOVE YOU, MY RIVER
I LOVE YOU
But you weren't there to hear it.
Instead I thanked the universe for the way we always seem to collide
So I can make sure you're okay
Beyond the dreams of you I have.
I go over the era where we existed as a duo
I wish I had been more kind.
I called you the love of my life
And am truly grateful for the time you shared with me.
Anger has passed and fondness replies
Through warmth and music and sunlight.
I hope one day you read this and smile
And you remember how your kitty tried
One day if you ever need me, I will be at home in our space ready for your mind.
My final promise, I will keep until I die.
