Falling Out Of Love

I wish so much that I could hold you.
A simple desire, yet so hard to do.
This is a love so hopeless, but yet,
As hard as I try, I can not forget.

I want to move on, I try every day,
to get a grip on these feelings and throw them away.
But everyday I pathetically remain,
Adoring you amazingly with nothing to gain.

I want to let go of what I’m holding so tight,
and let these feelings trail off into the night,
But as soon as my hold loosens, I grab and don’t miss
Because I don’t know how to feel anything but this.

I’ve become dependent on these feelings, that I feel every day,
without them I’m lost and my hopes are astray.
So now I don’t know how to live on my own,
Without thoughts of you, I’ll be so alone.

I want to get over you, but you’ve changed me too much,
All I want is to hold you and grasp on and clutch,
Because you are the one. I don’t want to let go.
You’re everything I need, you’re all that I know.

I tried to move on, that’s something I can’t do,
But no matter what I think, I only want you.
I just need some time, when I can, I’ll move on,
I’ll face life without you when I am strong.

But for now I just can’t, that’s way to tough,
I didn’t know falling out of love would be so rough.

Good grief Gordon. You'll have women flocking to your feet with this sort of notion. I would be very careful. Nevertheless very good.
I'd like my husband to read this one at the moment Gordon, he's not well, and I think when men are not well they forget how much running around you have to do for them. I'm exhausted as he's been under the weather for some months. A great poem on behalf of women everywhere. You've made a friend for life here. Love Ernestine XXX
A most fine and pleasant sentiment Gordon.
