At times I think about relationships that I’ve had in the past.
Wondering why they did not last.
Thinking how my life would be if they did not end.
Wondering if my heart really did mend.
In the end I know that it was for the best.
It feels good to know that I survived this test.
I know in my heart that I had to let go.
If I didn’t, in the Lord I just would not grow.
So I pray that they’ll find happiness too.
For I know that true happiness is not being with you.
Like Kryptonite you weaken my senses, you’re just no good for me.
Even in knowing that why can’t I let you be.
I know in my heart that you no longer exist.
How long will these feelings persist?
They haunt my mind every now and then.
Will they stop? When will they end?
We parted ways when you were no longer the person I knew.
I notice that I only think of you when going through tough times.
When things are going well, you don’t even cross my mind.
Just like the Israelites longing for Egypt.
I shall not be like Lot’s wife. I shall not look back.
I shall move forward, and look to Jesus.
In Him, there is no lack.
In Jesus I shall not want…after all you no longer exist.
You’re just a figment of my imagination, which attacks my mind like a cist.
You are a stranger, someone that I once knew
I found peace in knowing the person who I knew is no more.
It is now easier to release you, which is true happiness to the core.
