I Look Back
At The Us
That Used
To Be

Am No Longer
Sad, Hurt
Or In Pain

Came To An

Has Worked
It’s Magic
In A Way
I Never
It Could

Has Healed
The Wounds
But The
Scars Remain
As Badges
Of Honor
For Me

They Remind Me
That You Gave Up
On Us
And Walked Away
When I Would Have
Never Given Up
On You
Or Us

The Truth
But Finally
Set Me

  1. Dear Chuck

    …and it is always good to forive and forget – that makes a generous heart 🙂

    Thanks for sharing, dear friend
    Have a great day

    • Thanks, My Friend! You are so right about that. Not always the easiest thing to do?

      • Really not, dear Chuck – and often our own mind comes in-between our good-will, our mind is like a snake slipping through our fingers, not at all easy to control it. However it is also said: as we think, so we become and that means: with good thoughts we can overcome many things and from good thoughts, good words and deeds will come 🙂

        Thanks, dear Chuck and have a good time.
