As Much As I Loved You



~~~

When we ended, I thought

I would never love another

As much as I loved you

~~~

What I felt in your arms

Shined like the only beacon

In a day now turned night

~~~

Where what was held sway

Over what could be next

And tears made it hard to see

~~~

How could my greatest love

Now be my greatest pain

When hope walked away

~~~

I resigned myself to be alone

Knowing my heart could not feel

The same for anyone else

~~~

And I was right in a way

For when love chanced again

My theory proven true

~~~

I could not love her

As much as I loved you

I learned to love her more

~~~

    Sometimes I can’t help but think you are talking about a woman you did love once and now you have me wondering with that great ending, love it. Great stuff my friend. Love Jonikens xoxoxo

      I am always talking about a woman I loved once. I just don’t always remember which one….😁

        Haha I bet that is true too. You could swoon any woman with your romantic words and being nice looking doesn’t hurt either. So funny my friend. It is a big ocean out there. Love and hugs my friend. Oh and your great sense of humor. β€οΈπŸ€— Jonikins
