We Both Came Up Short. A Poem


I wish we could have been
The ones we really sought
But truth be told
We both came short.

I wish you well.
Truly there is no
Ill will my part.
I know you possess
A kind and good heart.

I am just not your match
You can see that truth.
Were we stay together
We would both
Become miserable
I am aware of this
I am stating the obvious.
We are too different
We are not each other's
Perfect fit.

I would like very much
If we could stay friends
But for you that
Might be a stretch.
You might have been
More invested
And my ending our romance
Even though I did it
For your future happiness
You might not be able
To look past
You might think I meant
To hurt you.
When it is the opposite.
I want to spare you
More time wasted.

When good people realize they can't make each other happy...Or maybe happiness is just out of reach...is it best to part ways?

If you like each other enough to be friends than you don’t lose anything. Happiness stays, the friendship hopefully does too. I wish you both good luck.
