I can still remember that day you left me
My heart was shattered into pieces and I was speechless
I never thought there’s an end to you and me
I was still caught in that moment, move less.

But still, I want to thank you for not choosing to stay
I was able to see the brighter things you left me in the way
The steps you take gave me the strength to move forward
The tears I poured moves me closer onward

Today, I am picking up the shattered pieces of me
Trying to stand up amidst this nightmare, I see
Thank you, thank you for leaving me
Thank you for this strong and brave soul that is inside me.
