A Hundred Years

A Hundred Years

A poem about mistakes.

A Hundred Years
 
A Hundred Years
is the song that
I thought of when
I thought of us.
 
Tears would
 collect in my eyes
when I heard
it play on the radio.
 
I always thought that would be
our song to play in the chapel,
on our wedding day.
 
How thankful I
am that it never was.
Now I can see that I would
have been settling for less.
You weren't the best for
me at all, not even close.
 
So many people
 have told me
that I could
 do much better.
 
But I loved you,
to me you were the best.
You were all that I needed
and all that I wanted.
 
Now, I thank the stars
above that you left me.
What a blessing
 that day was!
 
I don't regret
our years together,
but that's all
you'll get from me.
Not one second more
will be
spent with
you.
 
For I've got a lot
of living to do now,
working all of
the time for you, 
was not good
for me
and my life.
 
Laughing at me out of spite,
for being stupid for working
for you all those years,
wasn't right.
 
The tables will
probably turn someday,
you might find yourself
 exactly where I was.
 
I hope she laughs at
 you too when it happens,
just for the
way you
treated me.

So beautiful makes me want to go to sleep and just sleep wake up in 100 years I know that's not what this is about, and no one deserves this not even people who are murders! I like this though the heart is just one more way to get hurt. I say good rid-dins!

Funny how when it's over the rose colored glasses
come off and we see the truth.
