#92 A Lesson
I had a boyfriend that, after we broke- up, I longed over for a couple of years. Then one day, I just got tired of feeling the feelings I knew would never be anything again. I decided it was time to move on.

I've learned a lot of lessons|
In the short time I have lived
I've learned how to appreciate
And I've learned how to give.
But in these past few months
There's two I'll remember most
I've learned how to love
And I've learned to let go.
You entered my life with such a force
And left it with one as strong
And though we tried to make it last
We both knew it wouldn't be long.
I lie at night and think about
How I'm the one to blame.
If only I would have trusted you,
I could have missed this pain.
And so I spent each day of my life
With my heart in pieces
And when I thought it could never be cured,
Something happened; I expected it least.
I guess my soul was all cried out,
And it was tired of being used.
And even though I know I'm guilty,
I was tired of being accused.
And so I've learned to end this
Without an urge to cry
These are my final words to you,
"I love you and goodbye."
