I Kept It To Keep Believed

You did not leave me left,
Out of breath and sighing...
For your return.
Although my heart was broken.
It did not burn from yearning.

You taught me yet,
Another lesson to learn.
To know.
As I kept it to keep believed.
My giving to do with you as done,
Has proven to me...
Love that is felt to be real,
Maybe suspended.
But never given to anyone to end.

You did not leave me left,
Out of breath and sighing...
For your return.
Although my heart was broken.
It did not burn from yearning.
In fact...
I was glad and not sad at all,
To realize the love I gave to you to give...
From you I did not depend on it to get.
To know and feel within me it still exists.

You taught me yet,
Another lesson to learn.
To know.
As I kept it to keep believed.
Love.
I kept it to keep believed.

You didn't take anything away from me.
I kept my love to keep it believed.
To know.
And feel within me to remain and still exist.
