For A Lifetime

For A Lifetime

I loved you
For a lifetime
In six short months...
From the birth of us
Through the life of us
To the death of what we shared
And I'm exhausted...
By the confusion and the lies
By the games...and the times when
I had no idea who you were...

I loved you
For a lifetime
However short lived
Every single bit of breath inhaled
Was a breath I was willing to give
And I took my time
To show you
Exactly who I am and
Exactly where we stood
Together with hearts connected
In a constant competition with self
To love you better tomorrow
Than I did today and
Than I ever could yesterday...

Yet I still fell short...
Because that lifetime of love
Only lived
On my side of us...
