I Tried


I tried to love you the only way I knew how.
I was broken and afraid,
you were my light shining behind the dark clouds.
I tried to be the person you needed me to be
I tried to make you believe I was the one,
I still believed in us even after you said we were done.

I have fallen to my knees begging and praying
you would come back home.
I am lying here in the darkness
filled with dread and despair and all alone.

You have moved on with your life now and are in a happier place.
I tried to give you the time you needed,
I tried to give you your space.

I am trying to believe that we weren't meant to be together
even though we said it would be forever.

Out of the dark, I am searching for the light,
I am trying to accept that I must give up this fight.
My heart will never be the same or be open quite as wide.
My memories of the love we once shared will forever stay in my mind.

Baby, I tried.
