Sonnet for Moving On

Word upon word, burned deep within my heart
I weep for the loss yet doubts have I none
Underneath love once whole in piece and part
Through acts of desire rendered undone

Drunkenness loiters from that sip of you
The kiss we shared as goodbye passed our lips
Mixed with poison left behind as fresh dew
Less heavy words have been known to sink ships

The mark left behind is your legacy
Despite biting sting and lingering hurt
Time spent as we made me a better me
“Hurts” are not units for measuring worth

Forward on I go and yes
Life is full of happiness

To One Lost But Not Forgotten

I don’t regret the time I spent learning how to love you
Those lessons grew even when we were apart
I don’t regret the moments spent wrapped inside your arms
I miss you, but you’ll always be in my heart.

The healing comes when the mistakes we’ve made become the lessons we have learned.
The learning comes when our vision shows us the wisdom we have earned
The wisdom grows as we look back on the trials that we’ve been through
And the hurt will go away--but never the memory of you.
