But Borrowed Time

Handwritten notes that now bring a tear,
Bittersweet smiles amidst Christmas cheer
Inside jokes that bring mist to my eye,
If only I’d remembered,
Those moments were but borrowed time

Firsts in my life becomes firsts without you,
Left all alone when faced with something new
Smiling and laughing, to merely hide the pain
Wishing I could talk with you just once again
If only I’d remembered,
Our moments were but borrowed time

As I learn to grow and walk on alone,
There are so many things I just wish I had known
More “I love yous” and another late night chat,
In the flash of a second, it changed just like that
If only I’d remembered,
That life is but just borrowed time.
