I used to think I held you down
Even when you were floating unsteadily in the oceans of love we made
I felt the waves would never make you drown.
I used to think it was just you and me in our castle
Making memories that would forever remain adorable
Days without you by my side was unimaginable
Too blind to notice you were suspended in the sky
Waving your hands and calling for help
The adorable room you once loved to rest
Became a crying space you choose to brood
I thought I lost you momentarily
But how do you lose what’s already been lost?
The path got narrower as you fade away with your memories
For I was only blinded by the illusion you’d always stay with me
