You have been a learning curve.
A long walk uphill in every way.
I learnt the difference between
Illusion and Reality.
What's worse? My false friend, Illusion,
Or my good enemy, Reality?
I learnt that a smile doesnít
Necessarily come from the heart.
Your eyes reflected all my dreams
But I didnít see the snakes in their depths.
I learnt that words and actions donít
Necessarily mean anything.
Itís all to easy to misinterpret
According to desire.
I learnt how to say no when
Deep down I wanted to let go.
Intuition saved me from making
The biggest mistake of my life.
I learnt that when you made me cry,
It wasnít deliberate or mean.
We lack understanding, you and me,
Our Rainbows are too far apart.
I learnt to smell the sun in the rain,
To accept my portion of tears.
Kindness and sorrow are not weak
I will never be ashamed of caring.
It seems the road is ended now,
Perhaps youíve no more you wish to teach?
Here I stand on top of your mountain,
Watching you walk on, disappear round a bend.
Knowing my path is no longer the one you walk.
Searching for the path to lead me down again.
Wondering which mountain will be next.
Iíve followed you so long now, itís hard to let go.
This must be your final lesson to me.
I learnÖ

Such a sad piece.. but very touching.

"What's worse? My false friend, Illusion,
Or my good enemy, Reality?" -- A very poingant line here!

My friend, I'm glad that you have learned from this experience. I hope that someday you find someone who is deserving of you. Don't give up on that.

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

"What's worse? My false friend, Illusion,
Or my good enemy, Reality?" - A beautiful sentiment, in a well crafted poem.
