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

    Great piece Brad. I have felt that way when young and hurt as well. Then we learn we can love again. I didn’t see that coming but what a lovely and hopeful ending. Beautiful Brad. Hope your day is filled with lots of wonder. Big hugs Brad, and lots of love ❤️ Jonikins
