To Betty by Gary R. Hess
This love poem was written during a time when we were going through some major ups and downs. As you can see in the break up poem titled the same, we decided to end it (actually, during the time of the poem, we didn't officially end anything at that time. But we might have well have). Both poems were written during the same day.
For better understanding, we were living together for several years. She decided to move with her parents (another state) and once she got a job then perhaps we would move back in together. I asked her to come visit for Christmas, and she basically backed out of it (I asked her to stay for 2 weeks, she said that was too long. Hm!). We started to argue and not talk as often (which was mostly my doing, she rarely called anyway). In retrospect, I'm glad she didn't come.

Category: Love To Betty When we met, the circumstances weren't ones to be desired you helped me through rough times and we became something more We talked, we laughed, we fell in love Though I'm not romantic, I know But I do love The moment we met, there was fuel As time went on, the fire burned bright We had our ups and downs--I know But love is love, I cannot explain For you are my angel, my heaven My beautiful wings to help me fly Though I'm not perfect, I know But I am human The times we shared are my hope that there is a God that there is a heaven Our time apart has been dreadful I do not speak of our circumstances But my arms empty and my lips clean My heart is thinking and my mind bleeding For my love is here and not fading Though I'm not rich, I know But I am amusing (I hope) Time goes on, but my love remains We grow older, thicker, thinner, and me less hair But my heart is here and my love still there and my love still there Written January 29, 2010
