It's The Best For The Both Of Us - Poem by Midwestern Hippie

I sit alone in this old rugged chair
Thinking about you and how we used to care,
And I know that you won't be back
'Cause you took everything you could pack.
In a way it's a good thing that you left,
Now we won't have all of those arguments.
We can go on with our lives in a peaceful way
But we can still talk just for a while everyday.

Sure I miss you but I'm glad you're not here,
Because now I can fall asleep without any fear
Of being woke up by all the screaming.
That's what usually happened while I was dreaming.
I'll always have a deep love for you, you know that
But I think it's time to just see one another on the welcome mat.

It's the best for the both of us.
Leave the past in the dust.
We can see each other once in a while
And go ahead and drive that extra mile.
I tell you it's the best for the both of us.

You don't have to worry about me as much anymore
I have my own life and I'm opening new doors.
You watch, I can make something of my life just yet
And I'm gonna make it big, you can bet.
Really hope you do something with your life
Instead of whittling your life away with that old knife.
Well, I've said what I had to say
I think it's the best for the both of us to get on our way.
