That Was Years Ago

That was years ago
and most times I don't miss it
but sometimes I think of what had been
what could still be
and I get nostalgic.
That was years ago
and still there are some days
when I wake up I think it was yesterday
and feel all the pain all over again.
That was years ago
and I still haven't recovered fully,
never having truly moved on
but immersing myself in new life instead.
That was years ago,
and sometimes I wish I could stay there forever
that I had a time machine
that I would be lifted into starlight
and never give up time again.
But that was years ago,
and I can't go back.
