The Things I Can Do

Though my heart is broken,
Though my mind is a ruined mess,
I can stand here before you,
Knowing that I still passed the test,
I may not be the man for you,
And it burns me to my core,
But that does not mean dear,
That I don't love you any more,
We were friends before I fell,
And friends we will forever be,
Whether yours or just your friend,
I will consider myself lucky,
No I may not be the man for you,
But I can still hold you when you weep,
I can still try and make you smile,
When you are hidden down so deep,
And I can still lift you up,
And have an eye toward your health,
When you forget a meal,
Or cannot stand by yourself,
See these things I would do anyway,
Even if you were not my one desire,
I would throw all of that away,
Put my feelings on the fire,
Just to know that you are safe and warm,
In your mind,
Body and soul,
That's enough to keep me going,
Enough to fill the hole.

Very noble sentiments conveyed in that poetry..and yet I hope it doesn't mark the end of yet another marriage. Best wishes to you and your's during this holiday season Truebrit. I have always found your posts to be very much in line with my own thinking. .. although always stated much more eloquently then my own abilities would allow.
