    please don't leave
    i think that might do something
    irreversible to me
    i love you
    now i would like to be with you too
    why do you have to move
    so far away
    to make this happen
    my heart is gonna break
    it already has
    i'm sad
    I know God can mend
    the hole that will open
    it's so cruel
    i'm such a fool
    as soon as we finally connected
    we disconnected
    1000 miles dividing
    after all this time
    i've been aviding
    and waiting
    after our uninhibited
    love making
    you already know
    in the matrix
    what we've got
    ain't how it normally goes
    love grew slow
    how many women like me
    do you really nkow
    who would walk and grow
    and wait
    for 18 months while you vacilate
    i looked beyond
    what i wanted
    and prayed for your soul
    because i was so fond of you
    your resolve
    and committment to your goals
    i know that more than you needed me
    you needed to be whole
    and happy
    walking within your own dreams
    is this some kind of practical joke
    or maybe it's the theme to a country wester song
    i prayed hard for so long
    and now there's a 4-sale sign
    in front of your house
    and a plane ticket dropped
    in your mail box
    this kind of pain
    could make a regenerated woman
    wonder if God wants me to become
    emotionally lame
    and force me to abandon
    my promise not to ask why
    when His hand deals something
    i don't like
    is this really God's will
    that my heart would be killed
    i don't know what to do
    if i'm really expected to have a life
    without you
    that would mean i was wrong
    about us
    our chemistry and such
    how could i ever trust
    my heart again
    how could i allow myself
    to feel anything
    sure as hell nobody's gonna be
    touching me
    inside or outside
    how do people move on
    when the one is gone
    there is no way to duplicate
    truth
    love
    those are not combined everyday
    not often do people elevate
    so far above flesh
    not like we did
    fending off temptation
    until the lid
    flew off
    revealing something fresh
    i can't love like this again
    it's like when my son died
    i couldn't even think about
    giving motherhood a try
    for five years
    not until i dropped Christopher's
    final tear
    for me it would have been cheating
    his memory
    to replace him so quickly
    that's how this is going
    to be
    i guess i could find encouraging
    the fact that i did live through
    that awful thing
    i survived death's sting
    and surely i will recover from missing you
    even if it is hard it grew my faith
    it is another step toward self-doubt being replaced

    I hear ya on this. If the love was so deep, how can it be replaced so quickly? But we know it can't be replaced, ever. This was emotively flowed, and heard.

    I was here several months ago myself. Was wondering for a while if I could go through it all again, one more time. For a bit, I doubted myself. But when the pain cleared, I realized I had become even stronger than I was before.

    I know that will happen for you too, Nicole. Much love. :grouphug:

    Oh sister...this was so touching
    I've always heard the cliche'
    if you love someone let them go
    if they return they were always
    yours etc...(paraphrasing)
    ...personally...I see it but I don't...
    when you love someone as deeply
    as these words convey...it is unnatural
    to have to let go...and one should
    never have to...

    this left my soul in tears...
    feeling this deeply

    I strongly believe that..."everything happens for a reason"...and our creator see what...you see not. Yet from great pain, comes much growth. take this lost as a blessing in disguise...many, many doors...are before you. Love...true love...awaits you.
