The Day Came

Today I woke up and you didn’t cross my mind,

Today you were not my all.

I exhaled today,

and for the first time in forever,

didn’t wonder if you would call.

I didn’t think about what you were doing or who it was that may have been with you,

didn’t go through old text messages because today,

I didn’t miss you.

The day finally came,

the one I never thought I’d see,

No more trying to convince myself that without you there’s no me,

Shit was really good today,

and it only gets better from here,

I’m living my life without you,

Thats something I used to fear,

I wish you well and everything but guess what

it’s over boo,

Reach out when the time’s convenient but I won’t be pickin up

the phone for you,

I’m happy, I’m free and now it’s all about me

no peace can be taken away,

and I’m looking forward to tomorrow if it’s anything like today.
