Her 'Mistake'

The more she dragged on
The more she made it seem
As if
She never loved him
At all
The more she tore his heart into a million pieces
The sadder he got
The more he leaned on my shoulder
The more I began to realize
What I had sought
He was the man
The man I love
The man I was going to marry
The man that the upper power
Chose for me to have
Made for me to cherish
My best friend
Is also “the one” for me
To have
To hold and to honor
For all eternity

Now that we have been together
For a year
She says she made a mistake
A bad decision
It was wrong for her
To break up with him
“They were made for each other”
And she sees that now
Now she wants him back

He tells me again and again
He wouldn’t
He couldn’t
Go back with her now
Now that he has found
The person he’s going to
Spend the rest of his life with
That I have nothing
To worry about
But I love him
And don’t want to loose him
Cause she made a “mistake”

in ITALIAN: Così come le onde si dirigono versa la spiaggia piena di ciottoli, i nostri minuti si affrettano verso la fine, ogni minuto prende il posto di quello che lo precedeva, e tutti inesorabilmente avanzano. La nascita, una volta nel regno della luce, striscia verso la maturità, e contro il suo splendore lottano le eclissi maligne, ed il tempo si riprende i doni che generosamente aveva dato. Il tempo rovina la gioventù e scava le rughe sul volto della bellezza, e niente di ciò che vive in natura e' risparmiato dalla sua falce. Ma nonostante la sua crudeltà, il mio verso, che ti esalta, sopravviverà.
.......an excellent write...I especially like the simile, Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore, So do our minutes hasten to their end ★
Awesome I like this poem, check mine out
I love this poem. It is so beautiful and sincere. And the message is so pure. This is what every man and woman should work on - developeing inner beauty. Women, inner beauty is what will count to a husband. Men, true sencerity and sensativity is what will make a relationship stick. This is the grow-old-together ideal that everyone wishes for. And this poem could be for friendships too, not just romance and marraige.
