Best is Yet to Come

broken20heart11Everything happens for a reason and nothing is a mistake if you learn from it. Keeping that attitude has helped me recover from you leaving me. Thank you for the good memories and what loving you taught me. I am better for it. The best is yet to come.

Watching you walk out of my life
does not make me bitter or cynical about love.
But rather makes me realize that if I wanted
so much to be with the wrong person how beautiful
it will be when the right one comes along.

The Rest of My Days

broken20heart11When you said you no longer loved me, I was devastated. It took years for that shadow to evaporate so I could see clearly again. Now I know I will love again, but never like that. My love for you is the forever type that never completely goes away. B.J.

I held her close for only a short time,
but after she was gone,
I’d see her smile on the face of a perfect stranger
and I knew she would be there with me
all the rest of my days.

Well Learned Lesson

broken20heart11Why did I fall for someone who isn’t really for me? Should I blame myself for loving the wrong one? Or should I blame the man I fell for because he made me feel he was the right one? Or should I just chalk it up to a well learned lesson on the road of life? F.W.

You can not appreciate the right one
unless you meet some wrong ones.

My Love For You

broken20heart11Always I’ll remember that since you loved me once, even after twenty-five years there will still be some of that love left. No matter how much you deny it that love will be there. Whatever comes to you now or later my love for you will be part of its foundation. J.B.

that some people
can stay in your heart
but not in your life.

Lessons to Live By

broken20heart1For years I anguished over losing you. The emotional self-beating went on and on for what I did wrong. I was the bigger villain, but we are both guilty of letting our love starve to death. Now in love again the mistakes of then give me lessons to live by now. S.S.

and hated her, too,
for the ruin

So I Ran Away

broken20heart1Chasing a career is how I explained moving often all over the country for jobs. I thought having a new boyfriend every few months just meant I had not found the right guy. Then I fell completely in love with you. It scared me. So I ran away from you too. J.B.

It’s staying moved
on that’s trickier.

No Certain Place

broken20heart1Try not to cry for the person who hurts you. Do your best to smile & say, “Thanks for giving me the chance to find someone better than you”. For a long time I thought I didn’t deserve anything more. It took you breaking my heart to learn differently. E.O.
