And again I find myself wondering
Do you ever think about me?
What you and I have
You and I are so much more than romance
So much more than best friends
I am connected to you on a cellular level
And I know you feel that too
Though you always have been far better at shutting out your truth
We were never made to make each other truly happy
But until the day I die, I will feel connected to you
Umbilical cord severed
And I am still tied to you
Now both married to other people
And I am still bonded to you
You used to say
If I wanted to know how you were and what you were going through,
just to look in the mirror
Does that still apply now our hearts belong to other people?
If she makes you half as happy as he makes me,
I am truly happy for you
I’m happy that we’re both getting what we’ve always wanted and needed
And yet, you lurk in my shadows
Do I follow you in the shadows the way you follow me?
Or am I just a sucker for romanticizing what is no longer?
Appreciated in the dust
As it floats to the ground
And just when I think it has settled,
something ruffles my Jono feathers once again
I wish you a happy birthday
And I send you my love
From the shadows
