All things end


I lost a love of 20 years

But through the heartbreak and the tears

My heart was strong

And did not succumb

To the bitterness

Or the angry rage

I found myself a space

To grieve to grow

And though things got thrown at me

I kept my dignity

I kept my self respect

I rose above the nastiness

We had shared so much

The girls who are the best

And I have now moved on and away

And what has gone before

Has been laid to rest

But looking at my daughters

I feel still blessed

And I now look forward to what happens next.

  1. Beautiful piece of prose, very sentimental. You have a kind heart faux, and you inspire me in my own situation to rise above the pettiness and remember the good memories rather than linger on the bad. πŸ™πŸ½ thank you for sharing family
