I've always known that the love you had for me was a true love and it's only now in my life that perhaps Karma is opening my eyes, and my heart, to your painful perspective.

I found the one, I believe was truly meant to be but not before you believed you found the same in me I remember how much it meant to you when I reached for your hand I never thought it was that big a deal but now I understand The way you used to crave my touch to feel our skin on skin Yours raging hot, mine soft and cool no matter where or when Now I know the ache you felt each time he passes by every time he reaches out something melts inside I couldn't count how many times you tried to make me see that somehow all your drive in life you then derived from me. Now his support and steady faith I've found to fuel a fire He sees my diamond in the rough and keeps my dreams inspired When you and I said our goodbyes I never felt your pain. I was overwhelmed with under-wow so tired from the strain. Now I know what could have been if we had found a way to live our lives in harmony and thankful for each day. I found this love so late in life I fear how long it lasts Time is now my enemy as youthful days have passed In the stillness of the night I fight the tears I cry I know what Karma has in store for me with his goodbye. -Jeannie Minor

It is almost always an enlightening experience to see life from a different perspective. Most folks don't take the time. We seem to live in a "me first" society, which unfortunately means to hell with what anybody else thinks. Great write, as usual, Jeannie:)
