There Was - Poem by Lauren Pandy

There was once a time when I loved you
And the only pain was from not being in your arms
There was a time when you were my strength
And I gave you my heart to love and keep from harm
There were moments of light and periods of darkness
Yet I still held on to love, being faithful and true
There were many nights I cried myself to sleep
Because all I could do was hurt from not seeing you
There were days I blamed myself
When our talks of deeper things turned into fights
There were too many days you didn't see me
So many times I wondered if I was still in your sights
There were hot, stinging tears I feared to let you see
As I made the decision to better my life
There were hurtful realizations of being neglected
And seeing that my future with you would only be filled with strife
There were battles in my heart and hesitations in my mind
But in the end, I knew what I had to do
There are days I still miss you, even though I'm glad we're now apart
For healing to succeed, to myself I must stay true
There will be days to come when my heat will still hurt
But I know it's for the best, for that's what all shattered hearts go through
There are no hopes for a future of you and I to again be 'us'
And I am thankful for you still, because I wouldn't be where I am today had I never loved you
