Just An Almost

Too many not quite theres
too many promises of what we could have been
too many unheard prayers

You cannot live forever
on hopes and dreams and stars
On memories that never happened
or went by too fast

Maybe we exist in a liminal space
somewhere in a timeless place
But in our reality we only came close
in this life that we choose
we’re just an almost

The ghost of all your touches
the whisper of your lips
I wonder what we’d be today had they been
more than just a wish

We couldn’t find forever
no hopes or dreams or stars
Our memories never happened
or went by too fast

Maybe we exist in a liminal space
somewhere in a timeless place
But in our reality we only came close
In this life that we choose
we’re just an almost

We were only passing by
we came and saw and went
If space and time had differently aligned
what days we could have spent

We might not have forever
no hopes or dreams or stars
but some memories will happen
and some of them will last

Maybe we exist in a liminal space
somewhere in a timeless place
But in our reality we only came close
In this life that we choose
we’re just an almost
