To Betty by Gary R. Hess
You can read the back story and a love poem about the situation in the poem by the same name, "To Betty." It was a hard decision at the time, but the break up was all for the best. We were together for almost five years, but we weren't always "together". We would have to leave for long periods at a time and even when we were near, we would be distant from each other for the majority of the relationship, if you even want to call it a relationship. This is why the break up was for the best. It wasn't going anywhere.
Category: Break up poems To Betty For many years I've begged For many years I've come to a loss It was wrong but I wasn't always right The past ends here--and maybe our future I hate what I've become The sacrifices I've made have helped no one Not you and definitely not me Life is passing by and I have nothing to show For it to come to this is my mistake I made the choices, I've made the sacrifices But what did you give--love? Maybe, for a while So many years have passed with nothing but hope What do we do? Stay on course? Change? Or do we STOP? Written January 29, 2010
