I Still Love You
I have no “other love” in my life
but you have one in yours.
I can no longer compete,
For I fight an endless battle.
your “other love” has won again.
How it makes my heart ache
to see your”other love”
take you away from me.
You have created a life for us
that has made us prisoners
of lies and emotional pain
living in a charade disillusioned
by the “other love” you have chosen
that now obsess your every waken hour.
I can no longer live like this.
I will not give up on us.
I still have those dreams
we once shared together.
For I Still Love You.
When you are with your “other love”
Do you find them in your thoughts?
Our dreams that we shared
of growing old together.
Now we are only growing apart.
Your “other love” is so so much
a lie, a misconception you fail to see.
For your “other love” controls you,
possesses you like no other will.
Something I could never do.
I tried so many times to understand,
to forgive you endlessly.
I can no longer fool myself
So I leave it up to you.
If you ever give up your “other love”,
I will be waiting here in the wings.
To rebuild our dreams and life.
Others may not understand,
Think that I am a fool.
But after all is said and done
Remember I Still Love You.
Alcoholism is a deadly disease. It is sad that you have given up on yourself and your dreams. It destroys so many things.
Well on my way to recovery, I will not dessert you my love. When you are willing to seek help I will be there for you.
Fortunately there is a cure for the one affected by it and the ones who are surrounded by it. You can not cure it for the one infected. They have to do that on their own. You can however, be there to support them when they are willing to get help.
