How Do We Measure Moving On
by Carmecille Tamayo
How do we measure moving on?
Is it when you stop hurting?
Is it when you stop crying?
Is it when you stop longing?
Is it when you stop hoping?
Maybe to many, that goes to be true.
Let me tell you how I define moving on...
It is when you start smiling.
Not because you found new reasons,
but because you forgot old tensions.
It is when you start walking forward.
Not because someone is guiding your steps,
but because you no longer find reasons to look back.
It is when you start dreaming for a day called “tomorrow”.
Not because you want to escape from the past,
but because you have been freed by today.
The same way I smiled when you came.
The same way I moved forward when you led me.
The same way I dreamed for tomorrow when I found you.
How can I think of the past?
When the present completely fills my life with happiness...
And the future fills my heart with peace.
