A little piece of me is not where
It used to be
Is there a way for me to retrieve
It somehow
Is it drifting in the deep blue
Of your eyes
Or the skies
Is it buried in the cold confines
Of winter's snow
Or the ocean's flow
Or has it been washed away?
I was going to say
That it’s okay
I didn’t need it anyway
But the pain in my chest
Reminds me that a little piece
Of me is gone….
Is it for the best?
I don't really know
I could ask to have it back
But what good would that do?
It would simply remind me
Of you
