Here is a simple truth:
Here is a simple truth: life changes.
It changes slowly.
It changes slowly. So slowly
It changes slowly. So slowly that often times we don’t see the change
until it is right on top of us.
And it changes fast.
And it changes fast. So fast that when it happens
we don’t even have time to breathe.
You were a change I didn’t see coming
because you were a steady rock underneath my feet that kept me balanced.
Then one day
Then one day the rock started shaking.
I don’t understand why.
I don’t understand why. One day you loved me
I don’t understand why. One day you loved me and the next I was like a stranger to you.
The change had started happening a while ago
but I didn’t see it
until it was too late to fix anything.
Now as painful as it is
Now as painful as it is I have to let you go
because you are a shaky rock that is about to slide out from underneath me
and I have to jump off before I fall.
I promise I love you
but life changes
and it’s time for me to move along.
