Farewell To A Lover But Not To LOVE

Farewell to a lover but not to LOVE
It’s a bittersweet reality of us
This heart is like a boat still sailing
You’ll be a part of my anchorage

Never mind the past that hurts
We have buried the hatchet and moved
The best is you and I parted well
We’ve lost but found another treasure

Some memories are left in the deepest woods
We’re never returning, never earning
But memories worth remembering
Have made us crying and laughing

What is grief when it’s over?
Our distance is a sort of medicine
You’re there, I’m here, and we’re OK
It wouldn’t be a difficult Valentine anyway

    Beautifully written Chester…….I like your style, unlike a lot of poetry I’ve read recently, somehow I connect with your expressions…..nice stuff.

    This one is touching and practical.. simple and easy to understand, but still very expressive

    Nice, sweet but not too sentimental. I especially like the last line, keep writing!

    “What is grief when it’s over?” I’m contemplating that one…
