When I was seventeen
I met a boy I liked
And later fell in love

When I was eighteen
That boy was my first love
I lost my virginity

When I was nineteen
I was still in college
He was 300 miles away

When I was twenty
I finished college
Planning to join him

When I was twenty-one
We were at the same college
On campus he was with other women

And he lied to me
Telling me he was taking
Her to the store...etc.

Our relationship lasted
Nine years-
Four of those we were married

He is the one who asked
For the divorce
In actuality he did me a favor...

The title got me to thinking about the Frank Sinatra song, “It Was a Very Good Year.” But then as I read your poem, I felt a sense of regret. My college relationships were all failures so I can relate.

SAD POEM!!!!!!!!!! Liana Margiva

So many of us have starred in that story. I would like to give you such a hug because I feel the pain in those words, even as I sense a certain numbness or resignation. I applaud your ability to see his leaving as a positive. The rather dry way you tell your story, accentuates the emotional trauma, I believe, which is a very effective style. Cudos. Be well, Kathy

What as beautiful young lady you were
I had to mention this first :)
And it is a pity that he lost someone
so precious and loving but I must echo
the others, it's good he did you that
favor Deborah
