Happiness

Together, we created two beautiful children.
The best of both of us resides in them.
They have our passion, my independence, and your humor.
How is it that we can build life from nothing?
But we canít build a marriage?
Why canít we get it right?
Itís not for lack of trying.
For six years, weíve tried.
For six years, weíve failed.
Now, at last, we both have the chance to be happy.
Separately.
We could never be happy together.

I can see that you are going through a rough patch Tara....(hugs)

I liked the song...

I wrote this last fall after my husband and I separated. The rough patch is over now, I am happily living a single life. So, no Terri, you are not out of line. :-)
