The Bend

from Tilt by Brett Ryan Stewart



I’ve known this day

was on it’s way

for some time

but i held you here

because of fear

of letting go

please forgive my selfish heart

i couldn’t find the strength to play my part

the passing hours (as the hours) age these scars

i never it would be this hard

when you were young

and life was fun

i found you smiling

that sideways look

was all it took

to know you were (call you) (make you) mine

As the years went racing by

A haze of graceful aging filled your eyes (The (graceful) haze of aging filled your eyes.)

I always knew we’d reach this part

But I never thought it would be this hard

goodbye my friend

we’ve reached the bend

in the road.

Those times we shared

I’ll hold them dear

in my mind (memory)

I’ve known this day

was on it’s way.
