 Reflections of My Heart

Just~A~Because  ღ KKD ღ


You reappear
with this game you've played
Just let die
what has already decayed

I loved you once
and you walked away
but the once love is now safely
in an unhurtful place to stay

The words you spat
left me raw and bleeding
I dont understand
what you are now needing

Your damage could not
have been any greater
You left me standing
with no warning of the pain later

Yes, you took me to my knees
Two  years I struggled back to my feet
and now you think you can just stroll back
Well sorry ... Not this time my sweet

My life I have reclaimed
My etseem is back in tact
My worth I have proven
and that is a fact

So please go back
to your lonely little place
You blew your chance
to win this race

There was a time
the why would make me pause,
but now its no longer important
I chalk it up to  Just-A-Because

Authors foot note:
The Just-A-Because
came from youngest daughter
when she was quite small
and I would ask her
Why did you do that?
When she would have no reason
She would say
Well Mom Just A Because
and to her that was acceptable.
When I mix something bitter
with something sweet it is then
Not quite so bad...

Kiss The Rain
