leaving you wasnt as sad as i thought it would be
it hurt like hell yes
but there was also closure
an acceptance
that we had come
to our natural end
i wouldnt take back the time we had
it taught me love, happiness and compromise
but above it all it taught me
just how young i am
and that i have a whole life out there
in the world
it felt wrong for me to hold you and myself back
and to not reach for life while i still can
so thank you
for everything we had
i will remember it always
i wish you nothing but happiness
- my first love
