Almost a year since our last hello,
Just a few months more to go.
Almost a year since it became official
That there’s no more ‘us’.
There’s only you and I.
No more of us walking side by side,
There’s you and I walking different paths;
One left, one right.
Almost nine years, our story lasted.
Through ups and downs and everything in between.
Too many almosts in this story of ours,
But know that there was no almost in my love.
I truly did fall deeply in love with you.
You were my first love,
You could have been my true love,
If things had worked out differently.
I’m not your ‘the one that got away’,
You’re not mine.
But we are each other’s almost.
Almost but not quite.
Almost a decade
Since everything first began,
Almost a year
And yet my heart still aches.
I’m almost over you
But I’m not quite there yet.
