Lesson Learned

Written by: Sarah Schnatz

I didn't want you to be another lesson learned
I would have rather taken this lesson and applied it to something earned
But you were not earned
I didn't have you but for a single moment

I didn't want you to be another lesson learned
But I undesirably learned to guard my heart
To keep it locked away
To wait before I start

I didn't want you to be another lesson learned
But it looks like that's how it all turned out
So I wish you well, and bid you bye
I'll just sit here on my bed, with my lesson and cry
