I'M Learning To Be Ok - Poem by Emily Reid

It's been a while since we’ve been apart
Almost 5 months, since I broke my own heart
in this journey, I've grown all by myself
I've passed through a heartbreak, without your help

At first I was sad, and cried through the nights
Hoping you'd come back, through the door to my life
I swore that I'd never smile again
Not wanting to realize, that this was the end

I was afraid to dry out, all of my tears
Afraid to live out, my one greatest fear
To be without you, I would rather die
And that’s what I did, all I did was cry

My story was wrong, it couldn't be right
You had loved me so much, night after night
Our love had grown wings, and then flew away
Into our dreams, and in there to stay

Now I accept it, I know that it's real
I love myself now, I hear what I feel
Our love didn't fail, it only was lost
Our love was there, but it came with a cost

I paid with my heart, and then with my tears
I've learned to listen with my soul, not with my ears
I won't be angry, I'll thank you instead
I'll give you a smile, not the tears that I've shed

Thank you for being there when nobody was
Thank you for calling me 'just because'
Thank you for loving me, despite all our arguments
Thank you for understanding all of those nights

The point of this poem, is for me to prove
Not only to you, but also me too
That I'll be okay, I'm finally fine
Someday I'll find someone, who's happily mine

You made me stronger, helped me find
To let me love you, one I thought was all mine
After all we've been through, as ends come to ends
I'll always love you, I hope we can still be friends…
