Heaven must have needed you
Back up in their clouds
Thinking about your departure
Left without a partner
Reaching your hand out to my chest
A last-minute move so disingenuous

A year’s passed, so where’s my potential now?
A year of uphills and downhills and
I’ve made it somehow

Shouldn’t I be on the floor
Begging for you to call?

I know I’m alone again
But I redesigned myself to reclaim and regain
A sense of my own needs and purposes
No longer trying to please someone
Even if I gave you the world,
I realize it still revolves without you

A year’s passed, so where’s my potential now?
A year of uphills and downhills and
I’ve made it somehow

Shouldn’t I be on the floor
Begging for you to call?

Your voice to me grows weaker
Your smile fades into the ether
Any question about my time with you
Are answered with a murmur of “Who?”

A year’s passed, so where’s my potential now?
A year of uphills and downhills and
I’ve made it somehow

Shouldn’t I be on the floor
Begging for you to call?

I noticed that you’re happy
I’m proud of everything you do
Even if you berated me
Tossed my dreams to the fire,
I appreciate our time

I know you do as well…
