I’m standing at a crossroads

Looking down both roads

Not sure which one to take

I look behind me and see you

Should i fall back?

Avoid this choice for now?

I know taking a step forward

Means leaving you behind

Do i want to do that?

I stare at you

as you stand still

I have to let go

Neither of us are moving

We’re just casually rotating

Spinning around and around

But not actually getting anywhere

I look back at you

Whisper i love you

Then turn my attention

to paths before me

Its hard to realize

That neither of these roads

Will lead back to you

My body feels unsure

But i know i can do this

You’ve made me strong

I take that first step

Let the tears escape

And leave the past behind…..!!
