I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

Bitter End

(This is for my sweet friend Deb, who has a lingering love that won't quite let go.)

It's much different now than it was before,
even though I know I still love you.
I find I must keep it from showing
each time I painfully confront you.

No longer can I reach for the hand
that once would draw me near.
Your kiss that once lived upon my cheek
has been replaced by lonely tears.

The special places we claimed as ours
have seemed to have lost their value.
Those funny little greetings that once meant so much
have been replaced by a simple 'how are you?'.

The songs that once filled me with love and warmth
now only make me feel sad and lonely.
Your eyes that once caressed me with your love
no longer seem to know me.

There's no where to hide from our final truth,
so good bye my love, my dear sweet friend.
The love that taught my heart to live
has come now to a bitter end.
