Gained & Lost (An Original Poem)
I'm lonely tonight while I'm lying in my bed,
With thoughts of you dancing in my head.
Was it faith? Was it destiny? Was it not meant to be?
Were you just not cut out for me?
You don't look at me the way you used to do,
At times I wonder if it's me or if it's you...
What is this rift that has drifted us apart?
What is this sadness I feel here in my heart?
So many questions yet not an answer in sight,
Was I wrong to let you go or was I right?
All the nights of passionate love when we swore we'd never change,
But I guess some things just can't remain the same.
Promises were made but rarely were they kept,
Plans were arranged but rarely were they met.
Our love started fading like a rose untouched by dew,
The hours we embraced, how they became few.
The quarrels and the tantrums were over the simplest things,
Soon what took years to build seemed like a meaningless fling.
We used to show affection...when did it all end?
You were my soul mate, my lover, now you're not even my friend.
It happened so quickly I barely had time to react,
Before I knew it you had already turned your back.
I knew it was only a matter of time before we'd say goodbye,
Only a matter of time before you'd walk out of my life.
I had not much left in me, this relationship had taken it all,
Like the walls of a house that could take no more all I could do was fall.
To me love was promised but it wasn't fulfilled,
I've waited for it and I always will.
Promises are like lies wrapped up with pretty ribbons,
It can't be taken against your will, it has to be freely given.
I know love is out there for me, I'll find it some day,
I know my prince charming will come and in the sunset we'll ride away.
