Their lives were never perfect,
At times, much more than rough.
So many said, "It just takes love."
Sometimes that's not enough.

They grew apart, day by day
While time just passed them by.
He took for granted what they had...
Turned deaf ear to her cry.

Her heart cried out for all she'd missed
And found love in another.
A "perfect match," or so she thought...
They'd finally found eachother.

Romance blossomed, again time flew,
But in this lies took place.
Her marriage all but ending,
Was "him" she must now face.

Exploding anger, tears, regret
The lies came to the front.
She told him the truth finally...
"The love is gone."  Quite blunt.

Shocked, confused, he questions "why?"
Not willing to presume.
She reminds him how he let her go.
There was nothing left to resume.

So, they carried on their separate lives,
Though still married yet in name.
Her heart belonged to another...
This was no lover's game.

They talked about a future.
She thought about the past.
Many a year she spent married
And was told that this would last.

She made a choice that broke her heart.
She had to close a door.
The future could not happen
And her past meant to her more.

So, there they stood, a new beginning,
Remembering all they shared.
They must find a way together,
Recapture love and show they cared.

It would not be an easy road.
She did more than break a heart,
But through understanding, forgiveness...
They made a wonderful, new start.

If there is a chance to save a marriage that is the best route to take. I'm sure many blessings will come out of the hardships endured in the past. Well done, Sally! You've expressed the tension and heartbreak and hope in this very well!

Take Care

Love has many flowers .. some not so colorful
From what you've described, you may find a
seed has already taken root
Wishing you all the best

Sally-

This speaks to the hearts of many.
You did it with great feeling.

Sometimes the things we want cost too much,
but we pay the price.
It gladdens our hearts when we find what we got a bargain !

Sally such a wonderful discription of the scale we hold in our heart... I'm happy to read that all is given to her first commitment,  now what ever happens she know's she gave it all..

 If with pen in hand I've made you think
I've not wasted one drop of ink

Sally, sometimes it takes almost losing something to find out how much you really have. Sometimes it's too late. I am so happy that, in your case, it wasn't. Best wishes, Sally. You deserve the best Life can offer.
