The same

Three years have passed but I’m the same:

In love with you, naïve and scared.

I watch your photo in a frame

And fancy that you might have cared.

The world is rushing, planets twist,

While I have stumbled at the start.

I keep your bracelet on my wrist

And all your words inside my heart.

The Earth is moving, so were you

As I was begging you to stop.

You ran ahead, because you knew

I’d never manage catching up.

You're now a winner. You can boast.

I guess you’ve found a better place

Where you propose a skillful toast

For having won another race.

Well this is it. We’re strangers now

The world is rushing, planets twist,

But I’m the same. I don’t know how

To take your bracelet off my wrist.
