    I know that a little time has past
    Since you and I have spoken last
    But today something made me think of you
    So I'm taking time to make a call long overdue

    I know you probably wondering what happened to us
    How did our euphoric love bubble suddenly go bust
    But when you were seeing happily ever after endings
    I had not yet begin to see beyond my beginnings

    I had not yet learned to completely love me
    So I couldn't understand all that you could see
    For no matter what your eyes were reflecting
    My mind and heart were always conflicting

    I couldn't believe in love down to the last letter
    But life has a way of making you bitter or better
    Thank God, I choose to take the higher road
    Becoming the best Cinderella story every told

    Like Maya says I'm a phenomenal women and still I rise
    But my success now seems like a bittersweet prize
    Cause you not here by my side to enjoy it with me
    To bad I couldn't see back than what you could see

    But I look back with happy tears for the experience
    And I think you for showing me the real difference
    Difference in what it means to be really loved
    And wish you all the best from heaven above

    We often meet people who teach us lessons about ourselves, but we don't realize it at the time. I appreciate the positivity in your words.

    This reflection is sensational in the way it makes you take a step outside love to see it for what it really is.
