Get Over It

These are hard words for me to say.
My love has gone away.
For awhile we were so close.
Much closer than she wanted to be.
So she ran.
She ran away from me.
Seems like when you move too fast
and get too close too soon
from that day forth your fate
has become doomed.
A wise man did say to build
your home on a solid foundation
so it will never slip away.
The wise man was right.
My love has slipped away
and I sleep alone tonight.
Someone told me I should not waste
too much time missing her kiss.
They said I should get on with
getting over this.
Those words were so easy for
them to say and so hard for
me to obey.

no more difficult and no more truer words were spoken.... a heart who understands your words and emotions, believe me..... but your friend was right.... sometimes.... you need to let go no matter how hard it is, and soon you find that what you held on to so hard, shouldn't have been held to that hard because if it's True, it stays... and you grow, and you move on, and you find the staying from the one who was right for you to begin with....

i hope i didn't ramble too much... i clearly don't know you and have no idea whether this is autobiographical or not.... but there are truths in here and you have written them well... inspiring my thoughts.... thank you!!!

So sorry, James, that she left.  All I can say is you have to find your own way to heal.  Hope you do.  Hugs,  ME

from someone who does not like the expression which is your title, I loved the expression and the meaning in this very, very much!!!

Thank you all for the lovely responses...when we find ourselves so emotionally bound in a situation...the best thing is to step back so we can see the truth more clearly....not emotionally, but through reasoning and understanding...James
