Courage To Move On!!
|by Mindy Carpenter
They had been together for many a year,
Now all she can feel is fear.
She gave all that she could give,
It just wasn't the way he wanted to live.
He left without a backward glance,
Not even giving their love a chance.
She often wonders what she could have done,
To keep him from going on the run.
Now she is living all alone,
With nothing she can call her own.
She can barely make herself eat,
Wondering if her life will again be complete.
This woman is now moving along,
Building her courage, and becoming strong.
Time will heal her broken pride,
Toward the sunrise her heart will glide.
