death, loss and grieving

I guess I always knew
he wasn’t mine to keep,
and yet I prayed he’d stick around
until I went to sleep.

He left without goodbye.
I knew his mind, but still…
I cast him as invincible,
a role I hoped he’d fill.

I wish I had been right,
but he has proved me wrong.
And now my heart, forever changed,
must learn to carry on.
