Heartache - Poem by Eric Hunter

You would think by now that I would know my way around
I shouldn’t miss you so badly, I should be on familiar ground
How many more lonely days must pass me by
Until I learn the lesson that it does no good to cry
What manner of iron will some people must possess
To always look forward, and never to regress
Perhaps if I was willing to let someone take me by the hand
They could show me a happy place in this unfamiliar land
Perhaps I’m just homesick, for all the joys that were once mine
I must accept that they and you, belong to another place and another time
But I know deep within my heart that there’s a place only you reside
And when the pain of loneliness comes that is where I hide
So if sometimes it seems to you that I’m holding on to the past
It’s probably because I can’t accept, that our love just didn’t last
No matter how hard I try, I’ve yet to get over you
For the part of me that’s still alive believes you love me too
Surely there will come a day when that part of me will finally die
And feeling stronger with a new heart a new love I will decide to try
Until that day comes, until that joy arrives
I will sit here and wonder, how I can dry these tears from my eyes
