I don’t want to think of you in Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall.
I don’t want to visit memories of you at all.
I don’t want to think of you when I lie down to sleep.
You promised to love and honor… a pledge you did not keep.

Our happiness is now scattered to the wind.
You are no longer my husband or even a friend.
You portrayed a future of love and bright tomorrows,
Instead your eternal gift to me was sorrow.

Get out of my heart with your memories that invade,
You are the ghost in my past I want to fade.
Love is blind, even when the writing is on the wall.
I don’t want to think of you at all…

Well said. Now it is time to move forward and that is hard. But the dishonest ghost of the past can be buried. I took a great while for me, but the reward is amazing. Congratulations on your win, Kai

Thank you Kai. Yes it is hard. Dating is difficult for me. I was married such a long time it seems strange.

Thank you Lewis. It is difficult not to look back, but like the picture says, I'm not going that way.
