For The First Time

For the first time since you left me,
I was able to look at you without pain,
For the first time since you left me,
I could truly be happy with you only as my friend,
For the first time since you left me,
I could honestly hope you're happy with him.

Each day gets a little easier,
And each day I laugh a little more.
Each day life begins to mean something again,
And each day I learn to love again.
Each day I care about you a litle less,
And each day I grow a little stronger

I still hear the words you spoke, and I still feel your warm touch,
But the memorie no longer hurts.
Every day before now I felt your gaze like scalding knives.
And every day before now I couldn't bare to look at you.
For the first time since you left me though,
I stand strong and feel no pain

If that poem is really true to you, then you're really lucky! I never forget about those that I love, and it always hurts when I see them.

I don't think it sounds emo at all. Reading it makes you feel like the warmth is building up inside, and you can contemplate life happily again. I love it.
