The Ending of Relationships?

Updated on February 13, 2014

Sometimes relationships end,

sometimes before you're ready.

Sometimes before both of you are ready,

Those are the tricky ones.

If it ends with a bang, it is clear.

But what if it ends

With both of you still in love?

How do you move on from that?

These are the relationships I think,

that hurt the most.

A most exquisite pain

that can linger for years, or forever.

It is not wrong to still love someone

after the relationship ends.

For in truth, there are times

when that person was the special one.

Life is far from perfect,

sometimes the right one

comes at the wrong time.

That is when the pain is worst.

It is healthy to move on we know,

so why is there still a hole inside?

Why do we treat them as though

they are dead and gone?

There are different kinds of love.

Some will transcend time,

while others are gone

when there is no reciprocation.

When someone loves you or you them

when there is nothing 'in it' for either,

over time and distance,

that is a love to be treasured.

Treasure it and press it

close to your breast.

For many people will never

experience the fullness you have known.

And though you may never again

touch them physically,

Be sure they always know

of their special place in your heart, forever.

      Yes, the memories stay, but some pain is felt. Part of the struggle, I suppose.

      I love the positive attitude here, apparently born in the shadow of loss of someone who is even still loved, for whatever reason it worked out that way.

      Most of us have experience various kinds of relationships and their eventualities. The ones that didn't work out have better prepared us for recognizing and appreciating the one which did and lasted, or at least so long as life lasted.

      Had we never known disappointment or loss, we might never have truly known the wonder of unconditional lasting love!

      Good writing!

      You speak the truth about love, headshrinker. So many never really get to experience true love. Very precious poem. Thanks for sharing, Ryem. Voted up, beautiful, and interesting.
