Closer to Closure


The tears on my pillow that I've cried all these nights
Form the ocean my soul's drowning in.
The streaks on my face and the red in my eyes
Don't conceal the pain that's within.
I look to the sky and I pray for the day
These troubles will pass away
I wish on a star that my broken heart
Will mend and love again.

I'm getting closer,
Closer to closure
Closure to accepting we
Could never, would never be
Closer to forgiving you
For everything you did and didn't do
It may not be today
But I'm gonna find my way
I'm gonna smile again
I'm gonna be okay

Not a day goes by that I don't think about your smile
And I'm wondering if you ever think of me
I reminisce on the days we had
All the good and all the bad
They're all still sweet, sweet memories
Proud to say I don't cry as much
But God knows I still miss your touch
And sometimes you're here with me
In your arms and I drift away
And I'm hoping you'll always stay
But it's only a dream

Still I'm getting closer
Closer to Closure
Closer to needed change
Blue skies and brighter days
Closer to finding who
I am when there's no you
It may not be today
But I'm gonna find my way
I'm gonna smile again
I'm gonna be okay

But for now
All i have is my faith
All I can do is just wait
For that time
And I'll have to learn to be strong
Find the will to move on
And I'll be fine..

"It may not be today
But I'm gonna find my way
I'm gonna smile again
I'm gonna be okay"

Effective lines, effectively repeated... Nice job here!

PS: I caught three typos: In the third stanza just below the middle, "you" should be "your"; and the final stanza needs "I" and "just."
