Moving On

I hear you've met somebody new,
To love and keep and cherish you,
I hope she gives you what I could not,
I hope the memories fade and can be forgot.

Not all was bad, we had smiles too,
But fate didn't have plans for me and you,
We split up for ever and walked our way,
I see you've found yourself a brighter day.

I too am happy and though I am alone,
Building myself and our children a secure home,
it seems so weird that even 8 months on,
Our life together has been and gone.

I see you in our eldest daughter every day,
In the things she does and what she says,
Our youngest is more like me I think,
She's passed the baby stage in such a blink.

I try to erase the bitterness you left with me,
Some days are hard; some more easy,
For you threw our lives down the drain,
I picked myself up, and rose again.

It's hard to know you've moved on at last,
When I feel I am still stuck in our past,
I feel the pain and it's me who sheds tears,
It's me who regrets giving you so many of my years.

I can't move on for we've still got a fight,
I am determined to prove you wrong; me right,
For your actions I'll never forgive,
I want you to accept responsibility for what you did.

So keep moving forward whilst I stay here,
Fighting off memories that you left near,
It's my own personal battle now I need to win,
Giviing up is no option; I refuse to cave in.
