My Way Ahead

by Steven
(Perth, Western Australia)

Pain and sadness
are all I have
to keep the memories alive
I often wonder
where it will end
and how I will survive

But if letting go
is my only way forward
then I'm prepared to stay
Sleepless nights and
tearful days,
a price I'm prepared to pay

To love again
would be so great
but how can I cherish another
When my heart was given
and still belongs
to my darling wife and lover

She may be gone
to a better place
but her love is still with me
I'm not so ready
to turn her away
and act so selfishly

To move on with my life
and end the pain
I'm sure is what she'd say
But she meant too much
to give her up,
it's a price I will not pay

So if pain and sadness
are to be my friends
then lets get into bed
If it keeps me close
to my darling wife
it will be my way ahead

my way ahead
by: silver

This is the way I feel. There are times I feel I should get on with my life and find a new friend to care for but I also feel like I would be cheating on my dear husband. I'm not ready for anyone else in my life. We were best friends,husband and wife,lovers,and all the rest. I miss him so much. I totally understand how you feel. Take care of yourself.True love never dies.You will always have a piece of her in your heart.
