The Way it Was

20229-Promise-Of-A-New-Day

So young and naive

 in love, we believed

met at the altar

never to falter

said I do, I do, I love you

 

 Too soon it faded

our ties vacated

ah, so sad, too bad

  it’s time to close the door

 open windows give more

 

Life’s too short to wait

 I’m not one to hate

don’t like feeling so blue

I bid adieu, said toodle-oo

time to start life anew

 

So shoo to the blues

it’s my turn to choose

as I embark on each day

 I pave my own way

 I’m doing it my way

 

my aim’s a future so bright

wishing for peace and light

amid the bright and sunny

amongst the witty and funny

ah, the color of golden honey

    I think it’s called ‘hope’? 🙂

      Yes, I agree. We hope for the best and if it doesn’t work out, perhaps time to move on.

    The positivity in a not-so-positive theme is delightful. Thanks!

      Thanks, Reena. My poem was based on a true life experience which happened eons ago. I tend to remain positive about most hurtful events that I experience. That’s my way of moving forward.

      This event was confrontational but not intense. I prefer to walk away rather than be hateful or hold a grudge, which is I what I did in this case.

        The idea was to bring out buried thoughts once, only to lay them to rest forever …. if possible.

    I like this and it is a great way of describing this event in life! Wonderful!

      Thank you, Lynn. I guess it’s part of my philosophy that if I don’t feel there is a two-way street in a relationship, whether, with a significant other or a friend, it’s time to move on.
