A new beginning I seek to make,
But everything seems hauntingly familiar.
The baggage of the past is already too much to take,
And now the present seems all too similar.
I look back at the happy times we had,
When you were the reason for my smile.
And now I am broken and sad!
Why did the happy times have to last just for a while?
Were those decisions made just on an impulse?
Were those promises just empty words?
Those sugar coated words of yours I now repulse,
They now seem meaningless to me like the chatter of birds.
The memories of the past still linger in my mind,
