I Was Looking Back Today
Author: Emilee


I was looking back today,
to a part of me that's gone.
How quickly it did fade away,
how quickly I forgot.
The thing that made me happy,
but I had taken away.
Now stands as an empty memory
that I remembered today.
Now looking back on it,
I see how much I've lost.
Busyness replaced the sadness,
that's why I forgot.
Although I have moved on,
I still feel so attached.
Those people I loved are not gone,
it took a while to realize that.
That part of my life has ended,
but so many new things have come.
I guess it's only the beginning
to all I can become.
When I was looking back on them,
a tear fell down my cheek.
So many happy times we shared,
when we'd meet week to week.
But I would be lying if I said
I wasnít happy today.
But I wonder would it be different,
if I would have stayed.
I was looking back today,
and what I saw made me think.
Just how lucky I am to say
youíre the ones who changed me.
I remember the day you told me
that it wasnít really over.
You said youíd never give up on me,
and weíd hold on to each other.
But now that weíve moved on,
we talk less and less.
Our friendship isnít done,
but itís not at its best.
I was looking back today,
I canít believe I forgot.
Just how much I lost that day,
when my world turned inside out.
But, not that Iím on better terms,
I can finally say.
Iíll always remember you,
when Iím looking back one day.

------- Author's Notes -------

A while ago, I was forced to leave my old Youth Group because of some things going on at home. I miss them so much, but I am in a new youth group now that I love very much. Well, today, I was reading some of my stuff from my old youth group and I recieved an email from an old friend from there. It made me remember how much I really do miss them! Thankx and God Bless~emilee
