He sat me down and said don’t cry

But the time has come to say goodbye

I gave it my all but as time passed by

I realised it wasn’t love, it was just a lie.


“Please” I said, first let me reply

I know it’s been difficult but we have to try

You know I love you, that you can’t deny

Your the one for me, my perfect guy.


But he didn’t stop, he didn’t want to retry

I tried to be strong but a tear escaped my eye

I couldn’t make sense of it, I looked to the sky

Please give me strength, help me understand why.

    People give up too easily. You know you’ve got a good partner when they don’t walk away after the first disagreement.
    You writing is amazing, well done. Look forward to reading more.
