(Orange, Texas U.S.)
The transition isn’t always painless.
For love works that way,
Changing things no matter how hard you resist.
In spite of your resolve.
Tears are how we say goodbye
To what we’ve already lost.
Old wounds ache as healed flesh cowers
from the loving touch of another’s heart.
Nobody has ever loved me like you have.
Your all, each and every moment,
Asking for nothing in return.
You gave me something I’ve never known
My own heart.
