On a Good Day

I’ve abandoned that silly notion...
... that you will come back to me

My heart beats a little stronger...
...now that it aches less for you

Light seems a little brighter...
...now that I don’t sit in darkness anymore

Mirrors no longer cast a reflection...
...of you standing behind me

I’ve stopped sitting by the window...
...waiting for you to come by

Tears no longer stream down my face...
...thinking about why you’re gone

I no longer jump to answer the phone...
...hoping it might be you

My arms seem to remember other uses...
...now that they no longer hold you

No more do I wonder...
...who you are with

I no longer fall asleep at night...
...thinking I’ll wake up next to you

The sun seems a bit warmer...
...as that cold feeling has left

You’re gone and I’m getting used to it...

...well...that is...

...on a good day
