Time to Move On

Poem Commentary

Three years of ups and downs. Trying in every way I could. But there is no way a relationship can hold up when only one is willing to make the effort in more ways than an occasional word. Love lost is only lost if you ever really had it to start with.

Time to Move On



Life is sweeter without the pain
Reaching back each day for you
Moving on this heart must sustain
Hoping for words far over due

Alone in the dark and quiet night
Silence fills my heart
No one but you could fill the space
A word of love it would restart

Unspoken words tear at me
I cannot continue this way
Until there is nothing left
And I die a little more each day

Time to Move On
See things in a different light
Make the most of who I am
Move on without you in my life

I have more love than you could imagine
Stored up within my heart
It was all there for you to have
Abundantly I would impart

Distancing yourself as you so easily do
and caring so little of me
Though your words at first were endearing
Twas all lost for I was across the sea

So it is time for me to move on
I am taking up a new stand
I refuse to be hurt again
Time to see where this heart lands

Must have been good started a feeling and reminded me of my own dilemma. Mine is a very very quiet man, don't know many others who understand the pain of that kind of silence. I know it well, it is he... Write on......

san, I love that you can write such free flowing verse knowing that there must be pain and angst within, but still the poetry sings in a positive way! ginga

Thank you for your comment and the longing will have to find a new source. I must move on... thanks agian....Swan

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
