Love stories do not always have happy endings,
Sometimes, all that a love story needs in order to be perfect
is a beautiful beginning and a very happy middle.
We started as friends, it wasn’t anything special
And slowly, even across the miles,
we became intimate,
It was beautiful.
The way love grew, nobody could have predicted
Then came the ups and downs; mostly downs
We fought to hold on
But it wasn’t meant to be
That “happy” was always just out of reach
We did not have the happy middle
We did not have the perfect love story
But we made what we had work
It’s been a long way getting here
But now, we can take that deep cleansing breath, let it out…
And just let go.
Letting go is not always difficult,
Sometimes, you just know it is what you must do.
