Only a Memory

He was the most beautiful man I’ve ever met,
but it’s time now to move on.
I thought there was a connection,
but I now know I was wrong.
Just another female in all his escapades…
I accepted my part in the choices that I made.
Despite his rejections, I continued to stay in touch.
It was naïve of me to ever care so much.
Our time taught me patience and made me a little stronger,
but I’m done learning lessons, I’m a student no longer.
Next time, I’ll be different; for, I won’t try so very hard
Rather than pursue an interest, I’ll diligently stay on guard.
It’s not the most romantic, but it’s something I must do
I’ll never again feel sadness when a relationship is through.
Still, I’ll cherish the sweet moments, although few and long ago….
And, I’ll remember his face because I liked it so.
Having played the “friend’ card for two years, I am finally free.
That beautiful man is now only a memory.
