Don’t Give Up On Me Yet

By Abby Berman Mazenod

 

 

It’s simple they say

Life simply gets in the way

And I forget

To remember what’s really real

I’m sorry I don’t show

I forget to let you know

Times have changed

But the phone still goes both ways

I’ve disappointed a few

Like I’ve disappointed you

Can you forgive and forget

I’ve disappointed a few

And I disappointed you

Don’t give up on me yet

 

Do you rewind through memories

Perfect times with perfect ease

It all makes sense now

We had no idea

If we went back right now, right here

Would it finally all be clear

All that seemed so important

Meant nothing at all

I’ve disappointed a few

Like I disappointed you

Yes, I have my regrets

And I have forgotten a few

But I never forgot you

So, don’t give up on me yet

 

Tell you right here right now

That I finally see how much you mean to me

It’s taken time

And it’s happened so very gradually

But I’ve had my time

Made my life the way I wanted it to be

And you had yours

And I know that made you happy

 

It’s simple they say

Life simply gets in the way

And I forget

To remember what’s really real

Yes I have forgotten a few

But I never forgot you

So don’t give up on me yet

 

***Β This is a song/poem about keeping in touch. The older we get, the harder it seems to be to make the important people in our lives feel that they are important. It also becomes a challenge for us to realize how much we need certain friends and loved ones in our lives. I am all for filtering out the toxic people that weigh us down, but sometimes we need to take note of the special people who build us up; The ones that help you and me to be a better you and me. This was really inspired by losing touch with one of my closest friends and my attempt to reconnect.
