i'm glad i knew you before i knew love
i'm glad someone taught me
to hold hands to kiss
to whisper soft sweet words
before the grande finale
it's comforting to know it was only practice
and you were a good teacher
i learned to share
and to hurt and try
and now i don't understand
you see i'm glad you aren't the one for me
though i feel so strange
because he doesn't hurt me
nothing like you dear
and i wouldn't change a thing
you still don't listen when i pour my heart out
i can't break through to you
i'm not on your level
but when you hug me sometimes
i'm glad i was broken in by you
my love was once a fiery and passionate thing
it could've scorched his heart
but it spent its flame on you
and with its own tears
promptly extinguished itself
now my love is soft and carefully worn in
it may seem so old and tired
but my heart is happy in his arms
i know no other place
i answer to no other voice
i'm content to have learned to love by you
and i thank you everyday
because of the time i spent with you
i suddenly realized
that you are not the one

Beautifully written...sometimes we only put people into the empty spaces of our lives for want of something better to fill the space....the challange is figuring that out in time to find the one who really fits

------------------
Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!
