IF I TOOK MY HEART AND KILLED IT
~ 1 ~
~ 2 ~
‘Tis best that I forget it,
For it would not change a thing,
And give myself some credit,
And honour our wedding ring.
~ 3 ~
I must accept that I’m an addict
To post traumatic stresses pain,
and try not so hard to forget it,
For to fight it brings no gain
~ 4 ~
I must accept that I get angry,
And that it brings me shame,
That it will always be my quandary
For it is now part of my brain.
~ 5 ~
I know it will cause her tears,
because I am the man she needs,
but it is the loss of love she fears,
not the insolence that it breeds.
~ 6 ~
Time will bring understanding,
If I don’t try to turn away,
From what I cannot flee from,
That will forever stay.
~ 7 ~
The shared moments will get better,
And more often we will smile,
And you and I my darling,
Will have walked loves golden mile.
