He was never that guy that made my nerves implode
His eyes were like oceans that hold endless horizons.
He was a sunny day, and I once soaked in his rays
A safe and warm home that I once called my own.
He never made me lose any sleep.
He never made my appetite weak.
He calmed the anguish inside of my bones
Like a spirit healer, he brought peace to my soul.
We might not have lasted, but truth be told,
When I look into those eyes today,
My dark shadows seem a little less bold.
