What About Us?

“As long as you insist that I’m your happiness,
there’s hope for us.”

After everything that went wrong, and all that’s happened through the years, why do we keep coming back to the start? Do we think the outcome will be different this time? There’s not enough glue to put me back together again. I’m not even sure I was ever whole at all. So why do you keep insisting I am your happiness? I am broken and you can’t fix me. So how can we ever end with a happily ever after?

Your answer is always the same, “Because I listen to my heart.” And until that answer changes, there’s hope for us.
