Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

I knew you once
But not again
It's my fault you left
I feel so ashamed

After you left
I thought I had moved on
What I didn't realize was
That my heart just grew more fond

I thought I didn't miss you
But I guess I really did
I've just been writing you poems
Ever since I was a little kid

I'm a teenager now
And was convinced that we had broken the bond
My brain knew but my heart didn't get the memo
Because it just grew more fond

They say there's no time like the present
And that absence makes the heart grow fonder
I had no knowledge of this before
But experience has made me wiser

'You never lose by loving. You only lose by holding back'
But the Spanish said, 'where there's love, there's pain'
But 'love comforteth like sunshine after rain' according to Shakespeare
....screw the Spanish, I've got a lot to gain

With that being said, I hope that you know
When you left the bond wasn't broken
And what made me love you more
Was that my heart hung onto the words not spoken.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder
