you gotta take the good with the bad, smile with the sad, love what you got & remember what you had, learn to forgive but never forget, learn form your mistakes, but never regret; people change, things go wrong, just remember... life goes on!

Old pictures of the happiness we once shared,
letters you wrote expressing the love you once felt
Your jacket you wrapped around me that proved you once cared;
tempted to wear it, and imagine that you never left,
that you would be knocking on my door
Upon wearing the jacket, the faint scent of you remains, and i can almost feel your warm embrace;

This is all that i have left of you
the things that once showed love,
now only bring me pain.
It didn't end the way we expected
My heart had been broken
by the one who once protected

this caused most of my love to turn to hate
yet the remnants of love still remains
though it will never be the same

the pictures need to be burned.
the letters need to be torn.
Your jacket needs to be returned.
he'll never come back
Its time to let go.

The author's comments:
My first love took my heart and kindly crushed it into a thousand pieces. He broke up with me over text for no apparent reason. I couldn't let him go. my friends all told me that i needed to get over it, so when i finally decided to let him go i wrote this. But that very night, he called me and told me he still loved me. I was crushed. So the paper this is originally written on is wrinkled with tears from when he called.
