There was always hope
a small chance of you
returning to my heart
The beating of time
it got smaller as it passed by
but I never gave up
I always believed
in you and me
I will save a place
burrowed deep within
for you to return
to fix the hole
you left behind
to heal it with you
I know that day will never come
that empty space inside
will always be there
it settled in my heart
made me comfortable 
with it inside me
made it part of me
you made sure
you’d never leave
when you left
