When I awoke this morning it was thirty three degrees.
"Let's not fight again today" to this we both agreed.
We went our separate ways to our respective restaurants.
All day as I was cooking, memories came in to haunt.

I remember how your fingers felt entwined in my long hair.
I remember when I cut it and all you did was glare.
I remember our first picnic, and how I couldn't cook.
I remember how you taught me when you threw out that old cookbook.

I remember our first kiss, man how that one did me in.
I remember our first night together sharing all our sins.
I think of when we married, saying it was for all eternity.
And now I feel as if I'm turning too as you turn your back on me.

I'm tired of all the fighting, the petty little crap.
I want to get it back in line with the way it was way back.
We've spent fifteen years together and the last one's been so hard.
I've trusted you with everything, please don't break my heart.

I could feel the sadness that has happened in this relationship and the memories of the good times. It made me sad too.

WildChild, I'm going through the same thing here in OZ. All we can do is keep trying..
Chin up my friend. And fifteen or sixteen(as in my case) years is to long to let it die easily.

When times go bad, we always look back at the good ones and wish for them to reappear. Putting one's heart into the hands of another is a foolish thing to do.....and the only thing to do. I hope it works out. You deserve it.

Talk about "backs"......back up and take a good look.....there had to be a lot there to hang in for 15 years. This was written for him to see. I hope he will really "see" it. Good luck to you and nice emotional piece.
