Learning to appreciate
My life without you
Enjoying sunsets, happiness
The things I like to do.

No longer feeling hampered
Encumbered and subdued
There is life outside  my grief
My  world’s better without you.

Haunting photos, memories
Of love that didn’t last
The cheating, lies and false pretense
It’s  gone …. now in the past.

Constant nagging ….. sights and sounds
That plagued me with desire
Banished …. are  cast away
Mere ashes in the fire.

Too many years …. so much time
Wasted thoughts of long ago
What we had ….. is over now 
It’s time to let it go.
