Seven days after the break,
Are there any bridges I can build
That will help me reach the other side
Of this chasm between what was
And what must now be?
Seven days after the storm,
As I feel my heart ache
And I find each of my smiles is
Tinted on the outskirts with pain,
How do I find peace within the lingering rain?
Seven days after the crash,
How do I hold onto hope
When I am swept up in how fast
Love can be lost?
How do I move forward
While holding onto the memory of you?
How do I reach for the future
When a part of me will always be reaching back for you,
Longing for the past?
