Today I can look at you
Today I can think of you and not wonder
Today I can think of you without a longing
Today I can think of you without
Coulda Shoulda, Woulda

Today I can think of you
Without my heart, head and emotions at war
Today I can look at you with a smile and thankfulness
Thankful for what I learned

Today I can just smile
Cause I finally know
You were never mine and I was never yours
And for the first time
I am okay with that
And happy for you…..

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
