The Riwa Project

I think about you fondly.

Not at first

but now I do.

I was struggling

and used that as an excuse to ignore your perspective

Im still somewhat selfish

With a better understanding of self

There is hardly thanks in goodbyes

or love in a fight

and distance

at times

Really a rupture of ties

When there’s hurt

Pain seems to cloud up the mind

In a better place now

But I think the distance seems right

I still love you

But its not like we can link up and vibe

And if you called

You probably a few numbers behind

Hit some walls, Broke through

Grateful living my life

Took some losses

some been through it a dozen a time

Miss your smile

And energy had me picking up limes
