My One True Love

My One True Love
I will always love you
Even beyond the day when I die
But for us this journey is over
It’s now time to say goodbye
Goodbye to all that we have shared
Goodbye to dreams and wishes too
Goodbye to all “that could have been”
From the day that I gave my heart to you
We have travelled this road together
We shared hopes and dreams along the way
We thought our love would last forever
Never knowing that we could come to this, today
For today we must let each other go
Say goodbye to dreams of old
Knowing that we no longer share that path
That we once believed was paved with gold
For we trod upon that golden path
Looking forward to the years ahead
Not believing those things could change
That we would now walk this path alone, instead
But this is what fate has brought our way
We no longer walk that path, side by side
And those precious memories that we made
Will not be lost in the tears that I have cried
For as each new day slowly passes
I know this pain within, will one-day fade
But I will keep a place for you in my heart
Together with all those memories we made
Then when that day does finally come
And this life journey, is also at an end
I know that we will be together again
For you are my one true love, my eternal friend.
I will love you forever.

It grieved me to read into each word, each line, each though. I cringed as if I carried your 'cross of affliction'. The loss, your pain and the dull hope caused me to wonder how you cope

Hello my sister! This is one beautiful poem! But it's no wonder because you always write such beautiful poetry!

That's some deep, deep love. And to love even beyond life is really special. You have a feeling and a heart that seems to know no bounds. Lucky is he who wins your love.

When you fall in love with someone, and for some reason the relationship does not work, it does not mean you stop loving them. It just means that your life changes in some way, and you just have to move forwards without 'that' someone. Each love touches your spirit and leaves behind an important lesson that you needed to learn. We are both students and teachers in life......and in love.
