    I remember the pain
    I remember the dream
    I thought would last forever
    I remember promises
    that disappeared with
    last nights rain
    I remember commitment
    when you said I was the only one
    I remember my tears
    as you slowly drift away

    But

    with time my pain subsided
    the dreams I renewed
    promises I made to myself
    with someone completely new
    now the rain is just a memory
    the man I'm with is true
    the tears I cried for many nights
    I realized were waisted on you
    when all is said and done
    a lesson I learn from you
    that love is like a garden flower
    many colors, many hues
    its not the beauty of its petals
    just the fragrance it exudes

    Well Baller........

    You took me there with that piece.......didn't remember....
    never really put it into words
    but you inspired me to remember
    where I have been and how good it felt to move on........I thank you.

    Epiphany:heart:
