Forgot How To Love - Poem by Sandra Finch

Yesterday’s a memory and forever gone
There’s been so much hurt and maybe I’m wrong
But we haven’t been happy for so many years
It hurts, but I’m now realizing my fears.

It’s time for us to part, time to say good-bye
We can’t change things now even if we try
We don’t talk about our problems, worries or doubts
I’ve tried to tell you but you always shut be out.

We forgot how to love, forgot how to share
Treated each other like we didn’t care
Forgot the compliments, the little things in life,
Forgot how to treat each other like husband and wife.

It’s hard to say good-bye after so many years
We both deserve happiness, not sadness and tears
The kids are grown, soon we’ll be left here alone
We can’t go on like this with little love ever shown

We have nothing in common, not much to say
We’re more like strangers now, not like our yesterday
Hurt feelings and resentments pulled us apart
Words won’t help now, we both need a new start.

I wish you happiness, love, a purpose in life
I’ll never regret loving you or being your wife
It’s time to move on, time for us to part
Find happiness again and make a new start.
