A new day and new attitude
An eye-opening revelation
Today I learn to grow and start
To be my own best friend and love

After all these years I finally
Have figured something out
I deserve to get what I must have
To make MY life complete

I cannot ask another soul
To make my life complete
Instead I will repair my own
And find my road to travel

I finally can imagine that
I could be alone and happy
Today I know for certain I
Can manage lonely nights

I have for most of life so far
Have been depending on
The give and take of being half
Of him and her together

No more will I be willing to
Be happy with only half a life
Nor give much more then given back
And taking small things offered

Today I see this clear as air
Although I know that times ahead
I will be less inclined this way
At least for now Iíll do this

What a beautiful way to end a broken relationship. In brokness, we find God and then we find ourselves. A great lesson learned. You express your emotions so beautifully. I too have experienced this same thing and became a better person for it. Life has many beginnings and endings. Marriage is to bring childern into the world. Carrying on the extension of God's greatest creation. All things comes into the world this way. If it is God's intention for you to marry again then so be it. Remember, God loves you and He wants you to be happy. He will give you happiness if you just ask. 'lil flower
