By GIO HOLDEN DAGOOC
Thank you for the sunrise, the sunsets, and the nights you spent with me
For all the conversations that kept us up ‘til three
Thank you for not judging me and my inner demons that I tried to hide
For what little time we spent together, it was such a memorable ride.
Thank you for your kindness, your caring words, and your warmth
For pushing me to be my very best, and for protecting me from harm
Thank you for the music that reminds us of you and me
I’ll keep listening to them ‘til from our dead love I’m finally set free.
Thank you for the hugs and kisses, those private moments between us two
For stripping down your soul to me, for always staying true.
Thank you for being my most worthwhile risk, only choice, and bittersweet
If I was given the chance to love you again, it’s a choice I’ll surely make.
Thank you for loving someone like me, who’s only intention was to love you
But instead of healing you, I left you broken and with more cracks
Thank you for giving me the chance to love someone like you
Please know that you’re the one that got away, this will forever be true.
I’m thankful for so many things, for the story of you and me.
But I’m most thankful for the privilege of having met you, loved you, and
now setting you free.
