The day you broke up with me, I felt like all the flowers you'd planted in my heart whithered and died all at once
I'd trusted in the light of your love to nourish those flowers
But all at once you were gone
Taking the light with you
Plunging my gardens into darkness. How can a garden live without a sun?
After a few days, I noticed something
Although the sun was gone, stars still twinkled in the sky
That was the love of my friends, my family
There was a tiny crescent moon, too
Even though your love was gone, I was NOT alone
The stars got brighter and brighter every night, and slowly but surely new flowers grew
Some flowers flourish in the starlight
After some time, the crescent moon grew larger, fuller
I realized that that was my self-love
And unlike in the night sky, it didn't wane again, but stayed strong and full.
The gardens of my heart bloom once more
The flowers there love the moonlight, the starlight, they thrive in it.
I know now that even if a new sun comes along, if it leaves again my gardens will not die.
Yes, the sun may shine brighter, but the moon shines longer
There is so much love in my life already
I can survive without your sun
I can thrive without your sun
I can survive without ANY sun
I can THRIVE without any sun
I WILL thrive without any sun
And you will too
Love yourself. Because at the end of the day, you're responsible for the gardens in your heart, not anyone else.
And the flowers you grow look absolutely beautiful.
