From The Other Side


I was waiting on the other side, sincerely with a heart of prayer, believing your every word and hoping still for a chance. 

Did I cross your mind that day?

Was it hard hiding this from me?

Why are you hiding it?

Where is your heart?

Can you lie to me one last time?

Will you tell me it's because you love me,

and you can't let me go?

At least then, I can tell myself

your intentions were never cruel,

but God simply had other plans. 

At least then, I can fall asleep at night

knowing my love was returned,

that my heart was treasured, not destroyed. 

Then no matter how bitter our goodbye, 

at least it will be just as sweet.
