Lost love

Wishing you were somehow here again. 
Wishing I could hear your voice again
Knowing that I never would
Dreaming of you won't help me to do
All that you dreamed I could.

Too many years fighting back tears
Why can't the past just die?
Wishing you were somehow here again
Knowing we must say, "Goodbye"
Try to forgive, teach me to live
Give me the strength to try
No more memories, no more silent tears
No more gazing across the wasted years
Help me say, "Goodbye" 

There are far too many love songs written about unrequited love. I've always wondered why? Life and love seemed so simple. You meet someone. You like them. They like you back. Love is just an extension of the 'like'. End of story. But that just isn't how life really is. You meet someone, you like them. They don't like you in the same way. You get bummed a little. You meet someone else. They like you but you're just getting over the previous episode right? So the timing is off and then when the timing is right, they aren't available anymore. So life goes on, and you meet someone- all criterias are met- he likes you, you like him, if you're really lucky your plans for the future just tend to coincide. And everything seems just right. And it is. But is this love? Nope, this is just finding that you share so much in common that's all. Can you make a life of this? Sure you can. A good life? Absolutely. A happy life? Definitely. 

But in your heart you know it isn't that love you once had, that familiarity you once knew. That is the unrequited love that you listen to the songs and you know it's the one you missed out on. The one that would have been perfect, just perfect. If only. Timing was everything. That, is your lost love.
