I could cry at the broken or choose to feel grateful for the doors that have opened because you let go.
I could hold on , fight to gain control over the uncontrollable or I could surrender gracefully.
I could choose to hold anger, instead I feel nothing but love for the heart that let go long before mine.
You didn't choose to stop loving me, but I have a choice of how I’ll move forward from here.
You never meant to hurt me, so why would I say something to cause you pain?
Your love left, mine stayed.
With love belongs grace and gratitude.
I know my heart won’t heal if I push the blame onto yours.
You were kind with your words, I will be kind through my pain, graceful despite the fight raging within, and grateful for the moments we shared instead of greedy for the ones we never will.
The way breakups should be but seldom are.
