I started this one as a song. I might be able to set it to music if I do some serious editing. Stay tuned.
The last time I saw you,
we barely talked.
You had somewhere you had to go,
I had somewhere else I wanted to be.
The last time I laughed
I laugh a lot these days,
smiling comes easy now.
The last time I sang our song,
my voice was strong.
I can sing it without
wanting the words to be true.
The last time I had to explain
or defend my actions
was so long ago
that it no longer matters.
The last time I said I love you
and didn't mean it
is no longer a memory.
I've forgotten the when, where, and why
The last time I,
I could go on and on,
but I don't need to
do that anymore.
I talk, laugh, sing, live
as loudly as I want to.
I dance with or without a partner,
when I want to.
The laugh lines on my face have grown
and I love that they are always there.
I don't play the last time game anymore,
instead, I focus on firsts and well earned encores.
AND HERE'S THE SONG, LAST TIMES.
