    They say hindsight is 20/20
    So lately I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting
    And now I realize I’ve really been neglecting
    To look at the situation from an open-minded point of view
    As mad as I am at you
    I don’t feel our time together was a mistake
    You’ve shown me so many things
    You showed me the spontaneity that each day can bring
    You made me believe I was beautiful
    And a treasure to behold
    And that for every step I made, I left tracks of gold
    You told me you got down on your knees and prayed to God above
    Glad that He thought so highly of you, to send me for you to love
    Now, all of that has changed
    Because you took it upon yourself to rearrange our life
    It’s OK though, because despite all the bad you brought a lot of good
    And maybe I loved you more than I should
    But I wouldn’t change anything, even if I could
    Because in spite all the bull****, drama, heartache and pain
    I just try to remember the life lessons I’ve gained
    And for awhile I thought the anguish would be too hard stand
    But now I’ve found the love of a real good man
    That doesn’t mean that everything is now alright
    It just means I’m gonna look toward to the future with fresh, new sight
    I’m gonna try my best to work this thing right
    I’m not giving in without a fight
    Because I want him in my future, and not my hindsight

    Some relationships, I can easily find the silver lining. Others, well, let's just say that would take some work, but anything is possible. Good for you for being able to leave the baggage in the trunk. Clear, concise, and creative, as per your usual.

    Very Very nice indeed.
    You have the right attitude.
    New beginnings. I'm riding that wave too.
