I knew that I would be tired the next day
Yet staying up, and talking to you felt worth it
Worth every laugh, every tear, and every moment of silence
Despite it being so quiet, it felt as if you were the only one hearing me
Even with all the small noises that otherwise scared me at night,
Listening to you was all that mattered
People usually put on masks at night,
You made me feel like I could take off mine.
A day of pretending to be someone I am not, ended when you answered the phone
Thank you for being there
Thank you for telling me the truth
Thank you for giving me your time…
Time that helped me discover myself.
“I wish there was a way to know you are in the good old days, before you have actually left them” (The Office, Season 9, Episode 23)
If the time we have spent together isn’t the good old days, I don’t know what is
