Poetry: Moving on – Karen Vianca Crisostomo

I treasured you in my heart,
I wished we’d never be apart,
Coz you’re the best thing I’ve ever had,
I never thought I could be this sad.

You told me you’re better off alone,
Somehow I believed you and I tried to be strong.
Deep inside me I know something is wrong,
But because I loved you I continued to hold on.

And then one day I woke up with tears in my eyes,
I told myself “that’s enough” and so I realized,
That I’ve given everything I’ve ever had,
But despite all of these, you chose to break my heart.

It’s true I’ve never been perfect,
But I thought you told me that every one has it’s own defects,
I know I hurt you, I know I made you cry,
But I’ve always been true to you, my love was never a lie.

So go on, live your life the way it should be,
I’m finally letting go, so now you’re free,
I’m moving on, but I will always remember,
The friend I had in you that I hope I’ll have forever.
