It was not easy but it was worth it

Having to accept that there will never be us
Having to accept that you are a branch of another man
Learning to leave with the new picture of you
It was not easy but it really was worth it!!
Learning to dream dreams that do not have you
Swallowing a bitter ghastly taste of you not being mine
Having to smile and act as if everything is just fine
It was not easy but it was worth it!!
Having to quit the battle before it even started
Abandoning the dream of all years and move on 
Putting the blinkers on my face so I cannot see what’s going on!!
It was not easy but it was worth it!!

For what significance is it wishing for something that is not yours?
For how helpful is it chasing a phantom, something that is not there?
For love means considering the happiness of your associate
Your heart is at its happiness state and so I should accept it but
It was not easy but it was worth it, believe me you
