Forgiveness Poem about Love

I've never written any kind of poetry before, but after I found out my girlfriend had cheated on me for the second time, I was inspired to do so. It's taken all I have, but I have forgiven her.

One Life We Lead

© David
The biggest risk a heart can take,
A second chance, itís there to make.
Turned into three, there canít be four,
Gone from your life, if it turns more.

I canít rule your life for you,
The choice is yours, with what to do.
Though if it comes, please spare me this,
Your love for me cannot exist.

Inside I have, but nothing left,
In times of love, it feels like death.
Itís taken more than I first knew,
I had to give, my strength itís through.

Iím only human, man and boy,
Donít treat me like Iím just a toy.
I hope from now, youíll think of me,
Through distance, love, brutality.

One life we lead, to walk this land,
At times itís hard, at times itís grand.
Mistakes weíll make, through them we grow,
Itís far too hard to see you go.

If you do care, then I believe,
Weíll make it through, this time to grieve.
And out the other side weíll go,
Through, thick, through thin, through rain through snow.

The future comes, the past, forgot,
Dishonesty, it starts to rot.
No lies be told, we start as new,
From you to me, from me to you.

One year, itís down, though not through ease,
Two more, we can, we must, I plead.
Please keep these thoughts so you can see,
How much in life, you mean to me.

Emily.
I love you.
I forgive you.
But donít take advantage of that.
