When I blink 

I listen as you breathe beside me

Trying to keep myself awake 

Telling myself I can do this without you

Knowing deep down that I cannot 

I listen as the cars pass below 

Staring out through the window 

Telling myself things will get better 

Knowing deep down that they won’t 

I see happiness beside me 

But when I blink it will be gone 

The irony of life is that 

When you are ready

It won’t let you move on
