What Went Wrong

Sitting here, trying to be strong 
Wondering, where did it go wrong

The late night phone calls
And early morning messages

The planning for each weekend 
And all the places we unwind 

The memories we shared
And things we discovered together

Your funny facial expressions 
And the way you made me laugh

How we were so alike
And different at the same time

The way you knew when something was wrong
And I hadn’t said anything 

The way you made me look forward to your surprises
And I thought I hated surprises 

Your cheesyness, stubbornness and procrastination 
And all the things that make you you

I’ve come to accept it’s all in the past
And I have to move on fast
