Time To Grow


Hi! I write poetry, related or not to my life. So enjoy reading!


So many uncertainties in a relationship
So many doubts that cloud her mind.
Why is loving someone hard?
Is there an easier way?

They had thought to themselves,
If we are meant to be, we are meant to be.
Even if the timing is off, somehow in some way.
The universe will cross their paths again.

But the thing is, their timing was not off.
They just felt that they need time.
Time apart, to know.
To really know if they are right for each other.

Time apart measures real love.
Though it creates fear.
Fear that maybe one day,
He will realize she was not right for him.

But this is where it is measured.
No matter how many guys will like her,
If she truly does love him.
She'll stay faithful to him.

Same goes for him.
No matter how many gals like him.
If he really is sure that he only wants her.
He'll stay faithful to her.

Time apart measures real love.
It pains us to take some time apart.
It really does.
But if it is for the best, then so be it.

If it's meant to be, it's meant to be.

Lorna Lamon. Glad you liked it. it would just make sense without being clouded by the emotions being felt.

I really enjoyed this poem about the difficulties we sometimes face in relationships. Taking the time to reflect without the other person being there makes it easier to view the relationship in a different light.
