It felt like a rollercoaster
Every time you looked at me,
My heart rate went up,
The butterflies fluttered in my stomach
It doesn’t hurt
When I think about you now,
The memories are like old polaroids,
Faded and unfocused
But I do wonder about you,
Wondering what you ever did with your life
Did you ever reconcile with your parents?
Go to Lincoln for college?
Get that business degree you wanted to maybe pursue?
I do still care about your wellbeing,
I do hope you’re doing well,
Wherever you may be
And I hope you’re happy,
I really do.
I hope that,
If there is someone,
That she makes you laugh,
I hope she values your smile,
And that she completes you
When you hold her close
My last words to you
On the last day of senior year were:
“I wish you the best of luck.”
And that is still true,
I just hope you are living up to
Your extraordinary potential
I hope you see what I saw in you,
That someone out there
Is holding up the mirror that you’re missing,
And showing you
The amazing person you really are
They’re holding up the mirror that I didn’t have…
