I Will Never Be The Same

I Will Never Be The Same by Valerie Parente

"Full Moon Morose" by Valerie Parente

Everyone always says that things feel different…
when someone you love goes,
and you start to feel a gaping hole.
But I don’t see how that could be true…
because your life wasn’t just a phase,
you came and I will never be the same.

Because as I see it
What I believe
Is that when someone leaves
and leaves you with a mark
I think that proves
that they’re still with you.
