 Reflections of My Heart

After The Love Is Gone  ღ KKD ღ

After The Love Is Gone

I am told it would be foolish
to ever trust him again
but does not unconditional love
survive fallacy and pain

I know not what is being offered
His reasons are not clear
could it be regrets
or that I've not shed enough tears

This time of presentation
is both bad and good
I need his strength to draw upon
to extend if he only would

While yes my strength is drained
the me I am he can not remake
We are well past the point
of control over me to take

A lesson that needs to be learned
love is more giving than take
What he offers severely lacks
and that I can not remake

So to you my heart and soul
this road I can not walk down
The you I fell in love with
is no where to be found

I wish you love
I wish you joy
but my heart can no longer
be just another toy

You were my every dream
of what love should be
You were but a fantasy
that I now clearly see

Upon our road of life
that has now split in two
You go left... I'll go right
and to you I must bid adieu

Why did you have to return
Why did my heart you tap upon
After the love is gone....
