Staring into the mirror once more,
I know it's foolish, but I just needed to see you again,
Because I'm about to let go.
This time, though, the mirror allows me a bit of knowledge,
Not knowledge of the future, but of myself.
Looking back at me now, it's still you,
But I'm not there this time.
You're smiling at me,
And it warms my cold heart ever so slightly.
I realize that all I want is for you to be happy,
With or without me,
No matter how much pain it causes me.
I smile back, and decide once and for all,
I am going to wait.
If we meet again, we can be together,
But if you find someone else,
Someone that makes you happier than I could,
I'll pretend it doesn't hurt
