Envious Eulogy

Twas a laugh a minute, a cry a day, Then you found her, and she took you away, The days are now weeks, Seconds now gone, The music stopped playing on our love song. She now has your smile, your touch and your laugh, How much I miss you, you don’t know the half. Never have I felt such pain in my heart, Than when your with her, and not in my arms. I see you with her, tears well in my eyes, I watch from afar, my heart breaks inside, But I had you once, and I let you go, Now you've replaced me, and I am alone. I learnt my lesson, I learnt it hard, Now and forever my heart will be scarred.

Beautiful and sad poem, Emily. Sometimes life lessons come with a price... pain. But when we learn from our mistakes, we become better, stronger, and eventually find happiness again. I enjoyed reading your poetry today. Keep writing! Lovingly, Dane Ann
