At Last

I breathe relief it's over
I know where I stand at last.
You're finally where you should be,
a memory in my past.

I was living only half a life
that was tearing me apart at the seams,
for I had somehow conned myself
that I was happy in my dreams.

But now I'm back to reality,
I found a way out of this maze,
I just wish I'd got here sooner
but I was lost in some wishful haze.

I've had to be quite firm I know,
my sore heart it will forgive me.
I must learn to move on with life,
now you're where you should be.
