Moving On


Published by Family Friend Poems May 2014 with permission of the Author.

What the eye does not see, the heart does not grieve for...
But when the truth comes out, it will always hurt more.
Blinded by love, I failed to see how much of a jerk
You really were to me.
Perhaps too young, too crazy and free.
I guess I will never understand why you did that to me.
They say if you love somebody then you should set them free.
As you never came back, I think it was meant to be.
I am not bitter or angry anymore; in fact, my life has been better
Since you walked out the door.
I thank you for the gift you gave to me ,
A very special treasure, it truly is a pleasure.
I gave you a chance; in fact, I gave you so many,
But you couldn't be bothered to even spend a penny.
The door was still open, but nobody came.
I should have known it would still be the same.
It is not my place to play God with life,
But if you don't make the effort, you're not worth the strife.
Perhaps one day you might make the call, to make the wrongs right
And not start a fight.
I hope by then it's not too late, but I suppose I can't change fate.
I would like to think we are at peace with each other.
At one point in time you were my finest lover.
Some people just aren't meant to be together, but that doesn't mean
You are lonely forever.
Somewhere there is someone who dreams of your smile
And finds in your presence that life is worthwhile.
So when you are lonely, remember it's true,
Somebody somewhere is thinking of you.
