Iíve Just been told

Iíve just been told, the words "goodbye",
The word trembles from my lips, "why"
She says "itís her and is not me",
I do not understand, no I do not see.

In my memory, there is no indication,
That I would end up in this situation.
The pain that I feel is beyond compare,
She caught me off guard, so unaware.

Promises exchanged, only to be broken,
The words "I love you" just a small token.
Plans that weíve made, just fade to dreams,
Only hurt feelings are left it seems.

So out on my own, I guess I must travel,
Our marriage is over with the sound of the gavel.
I want to find love, I want to have romance,
But will my heart allow me, just one more chance?

There is always another chance out there waiting for you! Don't give up hope.

It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

I'm sorry for your pain,
but know we are here for you now,
lean on us...as you go through this strain,
take a day at a time...take this as your vow.

The greatest attribute of the human spirit is its resiliency. All passes with time.

Roger I know the pain you feel for I've been there, but I'm here to tell you time heals all wounds and I believe in my heart that there is that special someone for every one. Please dont give up, come back fighting and give love another try.

Time heals the raw pain you describe in this poem. Everyone tells you it just takes time, but it really is true. Exploring your emotions through your poetry will also help a lot. Good luck!
