    She was 17 the first time
    their eyes connected~
    he had bedroom eyes
    that seemed to
    hypnotise and tantalise
    made her want to fantasize
    about him
    all night long

    And she fell in love instantly
    in the whisper of his name
    in a movement from his body
    in a look
    in a smile
    from him

    He didn't feel the same
    she knew that
    because he always had
    some other girl by his side
    never her

    It wasn't until years later
    that she understood
    that he only wanted
    to get physical
    not mental or emotional

    She run into him by chance
    one day
    and hardly recognised him
    he looked so different
    from when she was 17
    and she thought
    looks weren't everything after all

    Two divorces under his belt
    empty life in the fast lane
    no-one to hold him close at night
    no-one waiting at home
    to share his day with
    no-one to love/be loved by

    He told her she was more beautiful
    than she had been at 17
    and that he wished things
    had turned out differently~
    she didn't

    She's been married
    to the same man for years
    had four beautiful children
    life was good
    and it kept on getting better
    every day

    And she never felt more beautiful
    than she did that night
    when she lay in her husbands arms
    and drifted off to sleep
    listening to the beat
    of his heart

    mslucious...yep..I agree...sometimes we just have to walk away and leave things alone, recognising that they are just no good for us...

    Rich..thank you...I know it sounds too cliche, but I think a true heart is the most precious gift we can give another..

    a..thanks for seeing this one...much appreciated as always..
