Spent Moments

Even now
with years gone by
since you and I were us,
I catch myself
freely spending
so many of my
precious moments
deeply missing
who I believed you were.

I don’t know why this is,
when I am,
at the same time,
so intensely stingy
that I couldn’t possibly
bring myself to spend
a single one of
my precious moments
missing who you
turned out to be.

    It’s harder said then done. Leaving the past in the past. Look how far you’ve come. Somebody missed out. 🙂
