I wrote this when I first started blogging.  I guess relationships are something I have always over analyzed and today is no different.  Words4jp made me think of this poem I wrote so long ago.


Our relationship wouldn’t last long

It was nearly over before it even began

I knew it even as I held out my hand

Your eyes were speaking volumes

Damaged they said, handle with care

Your words carefully guarded

Small hesitant snippets here and there

You need my help, nothing more

I had something you needed

I had something to give

Inevitably we will stand at the end

Saying thank you and you’re welcome

Thank you for making me feel important

Welcome, and thank you for supporting me

So on it goes with every one I meet

But I can’t help but think

The transaction isn’t complete

I think I gave away a valuable part of me

I held on to a valuable part of you

During this time you needed me

I needed you too

I gave you a part of my heart

In exchange for a part of yours

And now that we have moved on

I think about those pieces of me

Living on inside of you

It is now I realize after all this time

It is in all those pieces

Love becomes a reality

It’s with those pieces you remain connected to me

It’s because of those pieces

You will be a different you

I will be a different me

A better you, a better me
