“And darling, as long as you still want me,
I will always be yours.”
These pieces of us. Sometimes I think they’re trying to pull away like a flock of birds. Flying away, leaving with nothing left between us. And that thought scares me. Because deep down, I know what you mean to me. I know what I mean to you, even if I have doubts at times. So maybe that’s what bothers me so much when I feel like the essence of what we were is floating away. Because maybe it is. We are different people than we were. But that doesn’t mean we are drifting apart. Those pieces taking flight are just the old pieces of us. And in the end, what remains, will be stronger. And darling, I assure you, as long as you still want me, I will always be yours.
