Faith looks Forward

There once was a woman  
With a heart as pure as gold  
She had beautiful eyes  
A contagious laugh  
And her smile was something to behold!  
She went through life  
Loving and naive  
Fell in love with a man with tricks up his sleeve  
He was drawn to her light  
And to her pure energy  
But in the end,  
This “love” would be her undoing.  
The man was void.  
He could never have enough.  
So she gave her all to him  
In the name of love.  
She couldn’t have known,  
But she would never measure up,  
So no matter what happened,  
She still poured into his cup.  
Months go by,  
And then a couple of years…  
The fights between them are so bad  
Almost every night ends with  
Her tears…  
She wants to walk away,  
But he just keeps pulling her near…  
With time…  
She no longer recognizes herself  
In the mirror.  
All the sweet nothings.  
She really wants to believe.  
Even though his actions dictate  
That they aren’t really what he means…  
But the woman was trapped,  
Between codependence  
And her empathy  
And the man was well aware  
Of the conflict she felt raging.  
One day she found the strength.  
She told him she was leaving…  
She told him she was tired…  
She told him she was depleted.  
He breaks down crying…  
Begging and pleading…  
But she’s had enough and  
She isn’t receiving.  
She’s already planned a new life  
And this pain is not in the agreement.  
After she’s gone  
She began real healing  
She cried, she prayed  
And released all of her negative feelings.  
Her heart remained open,  
As was her nature by default…  
And she found a man  
Who was ready to love her through it all.  
He was truly patient.  
He was truly kind.  
He truly put her first,  
Took his time &  
He learned her mind.  
He loved her so differently,  
But the same every day…  
He was the man she’d dreamt of  
And he gave her his last name.
