About the Poem
I wrote this as I continue to reflect on how letting this person into my life was so easy when he chose to be there, and how letting go is so difficult when he no longer wants to be. I continue to question what mistakes I made, every word spoken, and wonder whether I will ever truly be able to let go or move on.
My Love My Life
Always isn't always, forever isn't forever
Will tears fall with every thought of you?
Words spoken do not necessarily last
Will I hear your voice every waking moment?
Forever's as far as you said you would go
Feelings return like a giant wave
Will I continue to feel I'm drowning without you?
Two who tried
One unable to continue, one unable to stop
Will I ever stop needing to know why?
In sleep you always return
The Knight who vowed to fight for my honor
Will I ever close my eyes and not see your face?
It wasn't to be
To replace you with another
Will it always be too soon?
Words spoken, feelings shared
Will I ever be able to forget?
Causing you to leave
Will I always remember?
Wanting your happiness
To see your smile
Will you ever leave my heart?
