With every tear drop I think of you, what I’ve been through and my life without you. Thought I couldn’t go on. Thought I couldn’t remain strong. But oh what strength I have, I didn’t know I possessed such endurance. The weights were pressed against me. The winds persisted. The storm seemed irresistable, yet I pushed through. I remained strong. I remained here.
I thought life without you would bring me down. Make me frown. Scared of the future. Fearful of fulfilling my destiny. I thought you were my only love. My only sensation. My drug. However, as I sit here and stare out the window watching the people pass by, I realize that is exactly what you were, just a passer. You weren’t a stronghold, although I truly thought you were. I understand now that life without you is just that… life without you.
It’s not a curse. It’s not sadness. But it is a new released joy. Oh, how I thought you were the only one. I was so deceived. Now I am willing to concieve this new love that is within me. I’ve allowed you to keep me in a cocoon but now I am free, like a butterfly. I’m spreading my wings to fly. Waving my cares goodbye as I soar into the sky. Thank you for coming into my life, without you I may have not realized my strength. Yes, you gave me butterflies.
