You were my life for so long,
The one thing that could pull me through.
You helped me through the good times and bad;
You were my only love song.

How is it we've come to this?
Our paths separating always,
As we go a tear falls from my eye.
What I could do with this time,
This time wasted on you.

Tonight as memories flood,
Thoughts of you and I flood my brain,
I realize my time was not wasted.
You have made me who I am
And who I want to be.

Here's thanking you for the time,
The time we have shared together.
It fills my thoughts with a history--
One that won't be forgotten.

The author's comments:
I am a teen parent so there's not much free time to do things I want to do. Poetry was the one exception--I can do that while my kids watch TV or while they are playing with their toys. It has given me inspiration and opened a new side to my character. This particular poem is written about a story I heard from a friend about lost love.
