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
