This is a poem of mistakes made, merging with hope for renewal
Honey, I know I've lost your trust
And there's nothing I can do
To convince you of my undying love
After all that we've been through
Honey, if I could begin again, I would
And try harder to do the things I should
I yearn to see the love light in your eyes
As you release, and forgive all the lies
We've been together for so very long
The ties that bound us held strong
With the blind trust, so long gone
I can't fix all that went so wrong
Honey, let's pretend that we just met
Rebuild our love, our passion, step-by-step
And as we share the last years left
Let our love, our vows, be kept
All the past hurts waft away
As we greet each brand-new day
We are no longer who we were
As new love and passion come our way
We grasp it with newfound glee
Our souls melded as once before
The past is past — so let there be
A future bright as our hearts soar

|I love this piece, Micki.
I'm looking at it from the viewpoint of one who has been married to the same woman for over 61 years. I know that to succeed in an enduring love takes not only dedication and commitment but trust, understanding and forgiveness.
None of us is perfect, and that includes your spouse that at one time in your infatuation stage you thought approached "perfect." But if we trust our own feelings and judgment, then we shouldn't second-guess our prior judgment in choosing a mate at a time when a personal challenge arises and you discover (again) that your mate isn't perfect either.
If you harbor the concept of "growing old together"--which I highly recommend because I've lived it--then you must live by the lesson taught in your "Love's Renewal."
You know and understand and have lived drama and personal challenges. Your "Love's Renewal" allows us a unique opportunity to learn by someone's life-changing experience.
Thank you for sharing, Dear Heart. This work is a treasure.

|I love the flow of this, Micki... ...and the theme is completely "up my alley" except that, in my case, I really did nothing to bring on the "rift." Anyway, I can relate and thus your verses speak right to my soul. Thank you for sharing. Love and best wishes,

|If we could pretend we had just met the one that got away, how divine life would be.|

|Your poem resonates with forgiveness and making amends. However, lies are lies and create great distrust that can never be forgotten.
It's hard to let a liar back into one's heart. Wouldn't you agree?

|I've missed your poetry. Nice rekindling of poetic thoughts, Micki...this line resonates with me. I've changed, and am no longer who I was.
