The 8″x10″ of you and I smiles mockingly from the side of the bed we once shared.
A reminder of happier days gone by and days that can never be recaptured.
The questions “Should I have done this, that or the other?” echo in my mind but all I come up with is I wouldn’t change a thing.
Our lives intertwined for the time that we were meant to and now it’s time to move on.
I can do this with no regrets, no ill-will or malice towards you as I believe you gave as much as you could without losing yourself. I understand this now as it is something I too have struggled with for awhile.
Knowing when enough is enough is probably the most loving thing we could offer each other. Otherwise resentment sets in and the outcome could have been worse than the emptiness I now feel.
My prayer for you this day, man I love, is that you find what it is your heart truly desires. When you do, there’ll be no need to change a thing about yourself.
