Before It Fades Away

Author:

When I thought of breaking up with my boyfriend, I always think about the good times we had. The feelings, the time, the efforts, and the future we have invested in our relationship is worth keeping and worth more than just a simple argument. So before I think of giving up on him, I think about how it would be if I hold on to us.

Before It Fades Away

This love we have fostered

Our lives it has conquered


Like a seed when it started

Each day we have tended


little by little as it sprouts

as tiny leaves start to come out


it grows so sturdy

and blooms so sightly


It has rooted deep

it is worth to keep

yet this love so tough

gone through things rough


it began to wilt

I am doused with guilt


the heart's wake up call

it was fragile after all


every day I tend

it began to mend


before it fades away

I hold on for it to stay

You had me following the cycle of life as I travelled the cycle of your love and what it was like with him. A tender poem.
