The doors to my heart swung open,
as I gladly welcomed you in.
How I longed for your companionship,
as I cas all caution to the wind.
At first things seemd so perfect,
you were everything I’d hoped for.
But then things took a turn for the worst,
a fact that could not be ignored.
The change took place so quickly.
I never saw it coming my way.
I could olnly stand there in disbelief,
in shock, not knowing what to say.
Of course, you didn’t see it like this,
even said I was way off base.
But this pain is real and my heart does hurt,
I think we both need some space.
This time apart, we should use wisely,
and examine how we really feel.
Then we can make a joint decision,
if what we feel is real.
So for now, I’ll close the doors to my heart,
as I give it a much needed rest.
The choices that I make in the future,
for me will be the best.
