Growing With Realization

Growing With Realization

A Poem by Manda

You were my everything
The reason for my happiness

I looked to you for acceptance 
And soon found a place in your heart

I loved you so much
Just being with you made me shimmer

Knowing that I was your everything
And your soul mate for life

As each month passed
I only grew more fond of you 

We were lovers
And passionate for each other 


One day all that changed
And I was left with nothing
Accept for my own self

I was no longer your happiness
Nor the love you once felt for me 

I was just another girl 
Swept from your memory
And left to find my way

For the first time in a long time 
I was on my own
Creating the destiny that was still unknown to me 

At first it was a struggle
But soon I began to unravel 
What I had not seen in me before

Realizing I had been wrong 
You had not been the reason for my existence
Nearly a bolder slowing me down

You helped me as a person
And showed me who I truly was

I grew from our companionship
And soon found what was right in front of

I no longer felt broken
As I once labeled myself

Now, I was a strong independent women
Living in the present

Taking everyday one step at a time
And never looking back

What we had once had was great
But now it's time to say goodbye

We can't replace nor erase
What was once there

However, we can move on
Knowing what we had so luckily found
A place in ones heart

Today I stand
Proud of who I am

What we went through
As partners 
Only helped us grow

And making me realize
All the pain 
And the lies

Helped me become
The women I have come to love
