It Was Just Two Months

It was just two months
But we went to the beach

It was just two months
But we went to a protest

It was just two months
But we texted through plane delays

But his mom followed me on twitter

It was just two months
But we met each other’s cats

It was just two months
But I let down my walls

It was just two months
But I thought it was all happening

It was just two months
But it was different

It was just two months
But he was different

It was just two months
But I was just me

It was just two months
But it was sunshine in the darkness

It was just two months
But I had hope

It was just two months
But now it’s over
