The Love I Left Behind

My heart built walls because I could not trust.


With no one to care for my heart would rust.


I challenged my heart to venture out again.


Because of deep wounds, it was reluctant to begin.


I was helpless at first, but my love  ran deep.


Soon I was searching for a lover’s heart to keep.


But walls separated us and I hastened on my way,


Looking for a new relationship to fill my day.


I searched desperately, yet I could not settle down.


A perfect woman was elusive and never could be found.


I became a victim of my own love/hate wars.


Bouncing from love to hate, I blamed failure on the stars.


But surviving was not living, I needed one true love.


I looked for guidance from Venus and Cupid above.


Dreams were all I had, though troubled from the start.


But I did not give up my search, orders came from my heart.


One last try, I decided, before my search was through.


That was when I got lucky, because love brought me to you.


Later I was chosen to lead the annual Valentine parade downtown.


I protested I was unworthy, for love had been hard to pin down.


Friends mentioned I had struggled while remaining gracious and kind.


Losing in love several times, I had scattered love and beauty behind.


I saw relationships blooming profusely all along my crooked way.


Then I realized love conquered all, and found the better way.
